Looking for work in Central Switzerland: Luzern, Zug, Schwyz

English Teacher of Adults

Part-time position - Available from August 2021

I am looking for work as an English teacher, primarily for ESL/EFL adult students, ideally for in-school, or in-company classes, but, given the current climate, online classes too. Although I have limited experience with young learners, this would be an avenue I would be happy to pursue.

Through my experience and qualifications (see below) I am able to provide a well-rounded skill set, both in teaching and management, to any language provision organisation.

Coming from Australia, I am also now a Swiss national.

My German is at B2 level, and I have good comprehension of Swiss German


Diploma VII: DELTA (ESP specialism)  - International House, London (2020/21)

Certificate IV: TESOL - Institute of TAFE, South Australia (2003)

Certificate IV: Small Business Management - Institute of TAFE, South Australia (2002)

Certificate 1&2: Environmental & Adventure Tourism - Institute of TAFE, South Australia (2002)


I have 18 years experience of teaching English to ESL/EFL adults at all levels (A1-C2), both in language school and in-company settings in Switzerland.

In this time I have taught:

  • General English
  • Business English
  • Exam preparation
  • Conversation
  • Special Purpose English

Between 2013 and 2020 I managed the in-company language school within a large multinational company, in which I collaborated with external providers to expand the language services to meet the company's and employees' needs.

Since 2020, following the company's global restructuring, I have started my own language company to be able to continue providing language classes at the company.
