I was born in England but have spent most of my life in New Zealand, so I’m a real Kiwi now.
I grew up in Auckland, then studied English and History at Auckland University. I started English language teaching about 15 years ago and have had various teaching and management jobs in this area since.
I really love my job as it gives me the chance to meet people from all over the world and learn about them and their cultures. I also get the chance to help people achieve their dreams – whether that’s to improve their English for a better job, to get in to an English-speaking University or just to travel and make friends in other countries.
I believe people learn best when they are active and engaged. If you choose to study at AEI, I would love to work with you help reach your English language goals and have fun while doing it!
I am very happy that I choose AEI to study my Diploma programme. I have the opportunity to study with various and very supportive teachers. The environment here is sociable and many of my friends have become brothers and sisters. Besides to have the opportunity to be part of the staff that always are willing to help.
I am pleased with the learning atmosphere and professional teachers here at AEI, which is a great help for in-depth language learning. The active classroom atmosphere is certainly the biggest highlight, and the personalized education concept that makes AEI become outstanding.
I spent 17 weeks at AEI attending the High School Preparation course. It was a great experience and I learnt some high school subjects and New Zealand culture, as well as English. The lessons were very various and useful for my next step, which is to attend a local high school. All the staff and teachers are kind, friendly and supportive. I highly recommend AEI to all who are thinking to come to New Zealand for study.
Alpha Educational Institute is a place with friendly atmosphere and good combination of studies and leisure. Facilitators are quite enthusiastic and are ready to help and to give advice. Administrative staff always come up with new ideas and organise free-time activities for students really well. It’s a pleasure to study in a place with such a nice team!
I am really enjoying the school time here at AEI, the teachers are amazing, they explain very well, and they make it simple to the students to learn and enjoy. the building as the facilities are great as well. I do recommend the school to everyone who wants to learn English.
