Voilà, three words I would choose to describe myself.

My name is Miriam, I am Australian (from Tasmania) and I am a freelance English teacher. Teaching is something I have always been passionate about; some of my earliest memories are of playing teacher with my younger brother.  This passion is not something that has dwindled over time, but rather, has become more focused and important to me than ever.

I first began teaching English as a second / foreign language informally five years ago, whilst studying towards a degree in philosophy.  Although teaching is something I began doing by accident, I found so much satisfaction and joy in it, that I decided to pursue ESL teaching officially and I have never looked back.
