My name’s Pippa and I’m from Surrey in England. I’ve been living in Catalonia since 2001. I lived in Barcelona for 8 years, and then in 2009 I moved to La Garrotxa, near Girona. I live with my husband and our two sons. We live in a very small rural village near Besalú. It’s a beautiful part of the world!
I worked as an Executive Assistant in different multinational companies for fourteen years. My experience includes an international recruitment agency and a large record company in London, then in Barcelona for an architect and a major private bank. After deciding to change my career path to focus more on improving and developing communication skills, I have been working as an English trainer for over twelve years in all areas, specialising in Business English for companies. Over the last 5 years, I have focused mainly on teaching ‘virtual classes’, using WebEx, Skype and telephone, as well as tutoring different levels of online Business English courses.
I speak fluent Catalan and Spanish and have always had a real passion for languages, especially English of course! I also love spending my time listening to music, singing, playing the guitar, cooking, going to the theatre, hiking, cycling, kayaking, playing with my sons and training our wonderful dog ‘Messi’.
I look forward to speaking to you very soon!
