Malvern House London Teachers

Originally from ‘the city of dreaming spires’ – Oxford – I have spent most of my life living in London. My career began when I realised how much I adore languages, which was when I was studying Japanese at school. From there I went on to study language teaching and travelled to Asia. I am an enormous fan of contemporary oriental culture and in particular Japanese anime and video games, I also taught in China for a time and speak Chinese as a second language. I have been at Malvern House for many years now and I’m always happy to have a chat, so please feel free to say ‘hello’ to me if you see me here!
Steven Harrop
I’ve been a teacher for 21 years and I’ve worked at Malvern House since January 2014. I’ve taught all levels from beginners to advanced and have a particular interest in grammar and pronunciation. I do a lot of the social activities at Malvern House, including weekend trips. I love travelling in my free time so it’s great that I can combine my job with my hobby.
Stephen Philips
I was born in Liverpool. I have a lot of teaching experience: after I graduated from university with a degree in English, I taught in high schools as a learning mentor, helping students with special learning needs. I have been working at Malvern House for several years now. I am a patient teacher who works hard to help students become as fluent and confident as possible. In my spare time I love going to the theatre, swimming, meditation and spending time with friends. I look forward to meeting you in London.
Alina Stoicescu
I’ve been working for Malvern House since 2009 and I’ve been teaching English since 2011. I have experience with all levels from absolute beginner to advanced students, but my strongest point is teaching exam classes like PET, CAE, and IELTS. I’ve helped lots of students achieve their dreams of studying in British and European universities or simply to improve their English much faster so that they could embark on other life adventures. I am also a qualified Trinity exam marker.
I’ve been teaching English as a foreign language for 15 years, and in that time I’ve worked in Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina and The Netherlands, as well as in London for the past ten years. I particularly enjoy teaching in London because it means I get to meet people from all over the world every day, and play games with them.
I’ve been a teacher for many years. My favourite aspect of teaching English in a language school is the diversity of the students: where they come from and the languages they speak and the experiences they bring to the class. Every day is different and teaching here is a life of surprises with something new to learn every day.
Rick Ansell

I have got a degree in English Literature and Philosophy. I have been a teacher for 35 years and I love teaching. Before I started at Malvern House I was a teacher trainer - so I was teaching people how to teach! Additionally, I am the Learning Support Tutor at Malvern House. Students can talk with me about any particular difficulties they might be having and I’ll suggest ways they can improve their English. I really care about the progress of my students and to make people believe in themselves and their ability to use English well.
