I’m Lorraine Weston and I’m the proud owner of Simply English Edinburgh, a business I started in 2016 after some time working in a variety of language schools across the UK, Ireland, Spain, Germany and Argentina. I’m from a small town on the south coast of Ireland and always loved languages and travelling. After studying a BA in Applied Languages at the University of Limerick (German and Spanish) I came to Edinburgh to study a Masters in Education, fell in love with the city and have been here since! Apart from travelling, sport is my major passion in life. I’m a Waterford hurling fan (Gaelic game played in Ireland) and also support Arsenal, Real Madrid, any basketball team with LeBron James, Munster and of course the Irish rugby team! The best thing about my job is meeting fantastic people from all walks of life and sharing beautiful moments with them in this incredible city!
I’m Ruth from Manchester (the best city in England!) and I’ve been working at Simply English Edinburgh since September 2019. I first moved to Edinburgh in 2010 and studied Journalism at Napier. I then became a qualified English teacher in 2014 and went to Vietnam, Spain and Japan to teach, all of which was so much fun! I’m now happily back in Scotland and really enjoying teaching at Simply English. In my free time I enjoy reading, going to the cinema and generally relaxing. I’m also learning Spanish, and one of my favourite things about teaching is meeting new people from all over the world!
My name is Ludo, I’ve been working at Simply English since February 2018 and I can say that my favourite thing about working here is getting to know people from other nations and cultures.I am from just outside London but I love living in Edinburgh. My undergraduate degree was in Philosophy and I studied my TEFL in 2016, Since then I have worked as an English as a foreign language teacher and I love learning about the English language. In my free time, I do computer programming and I love eating cheese. One more thing: Simply English is present perfect!
I’m Benny. I’m from Waterford in Ireland. I’m 28 and I moved to Edinburgh in 2019. I’m a sports and fitness fanatic and I spend lots of time outdoors and in nature on my mountain bike! If I’m not outdoors then I’m probably at home supporting Manchester United and playing with my cat. Meeting new students and people is my thing and I like to learn about new cultures. I enjoy teaching in a relaxing and fun environment.
Hi I’m Beca and I grew up in Edinburgh. I did an undergraduate degree in English literature and then went on to do CELTA training and teach English in Sicily, Hanoi and Madrid. I love teaching English because I’m always learning from my students and meeting new people from all over the world. I have been teaching at Simply English since early 2018 and I love it because of the friendly atmosphere and as well as attending classes, the students have the chance to go on trips around the country. My hobbies include cinema, art, reading and travelling.
