Hi, I'm Ross. Over the last ten years or so I've worked as teacher, a flying teacher (whatever that is) a Director of Studies, a teacher trainer now as a Trinity CertTESOL and DipTESOL trainer. I'm also and a sucker for data, love researching what motivates teachers, getting on my high horse about English as a Lingua Franca and teaching young learners.

Hi, my name's Tracy. I started off as a public school English teacher in Beijing before going into private education as an English teacher, then as a manager. I'm now a Trinity CertTESOL Course Director and Trinity DipTESOL trainer and examiner. I'm particularly nerdy about differentiation, student autonomy, technology in the classroom and teacher training.
