You don’t have time to write fun, engaging and grammatically correct content on Facebook, on your website or in your newsletters. I do!Read more
And talking of content: Why not stand out from the crowd with moving pictures? Videos and animation is the way to go when people spend only about 2.3 milliseconds a day reading, but all of 6 seconds – or something - looking at pictures!Read more

Skype is actually better than 'live' teaching because 1: No violence! 2: It's cheaper! 3: You can have the lessons whenever and wherever it suits you!

She now lives in Palma de Mallorca with her two dogs, enjoying fresh air and architectural beauty.
