Main Course Tutor: Nicola Harwood
At the start of 2015, we were very excited to have Nicola Harwood take over the role of Main Course Tutor this year. She has been in the TEFL business since 1991 when she did her CELTA. She spent 11 years in Spain where she ran her own school before returning to London to do her DELTA and join International House London. Before becoming a CELTA trainer, she worked in various roles at IH London such as General English and Exam teacher, IELTS examiner, Evening School Coordinator, and Assistant Director of Studies. Since becoming a trainer, she has worked on approximately 50 CELTA courses, mostly in London. In South America, she has trained experienced teachers in Lima and trained CELTA candidates in Bogotá and Medellin.
Assistant Trainer: Annie Thomson
The Assistant Trainer on the last four courses of the year in Montañita is Annie Thomson. She started her career in EFL in 1998 and taught in Venezuela, Portugal, Mexico and Ecuador. Since 2006 Annie has been working at the prestigious International House, London where she became a teacher trainer working on both CELTA and Delta programmes. She has designed and delivered tailor-made training courses for groups of practising educationalists who like to keep abreast of the latest trends in pedagogic methodology and also co-wrote online courses including the Online CELTA and TKT-KAL. Luckily for us Annie loved Ecuador so much on her first visit she has decided to return.
