Neil McCarthy

Head Teacher

Hi everybody, my name is Neil, I am from Cork, in the south of Ireland.

What do I like about teaching? The opportunity to "roll my sleeves up" and find out exactly what each learner needs in order to meet his/her goals. Everyone has a different strength and weakness and that keeps the job interesting!

Hello! I’m Jess and I’m originally from Wales, UK. I also lived in London  where I did my doctorate and worked in the field of clinical psychology. However, after moving to Austria in 2016, I decided to change my career path to teaching English. My passion for languages has grown ever since. 

What do I like about teaching? I love working collaboratively with people, supporting them to become more confident and helping them achieve their individual goals.

Bryan W. Avery, B.Sc, B.Ad

Teacher

Hi everyone!

I came to Austria from Washington DC, after a career in financial management and controlling, in 2004. I chose to pursue a second career in teaching English, since training and explaining are natural talents of mine. Furthermore, I enjoy doing this because it is both gratifying and satisfying to assist others in building their competence and confidence speaking the most commonly spoken language in the world.

Eckard Nieman

Teacher

Hi there! I was born and raised in South Africa where I grew up with an affinity for learning languages. In 2013, I decided to move to Austria but it wasn't until much later that I discovered that teaching is something I love doing just as much. 

I have found that being able to play a role in helping others to unlock their language skills is extremely rewarding and something I enjoy doing every day.

Teacher

Hi everybody, my name is Aglaia, I am from Canada.

With respect to teaching English, there is nothing more rewarding than witnessing a student's smile as the lightbulb finally goes off - and knowing that, on the tiniest of scales, you were somehow involved in making that spark ignite.
