Welcome To Palm Tree Teaching From Deirdre Nicholas, CEO

Hello everyone! Welcome to Palm Tree Teaching Ltd, which I have created to help people by providing top-quality English teaching, training and learning. We offer a complete English solution for you, your children, companies and schools. Our mission is to provide empowering and life-enhancing English learning for all.

I have a background in business in London as well as 20 years’ experience in teaching, teacher training and in the field of English education for the government, for private institutions, embassies and corporate companies in the UK and around the world.

I have spent many years living and working in the UK, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, of which 12 have been working for the British Council across different countries. For the last 4 and a half years I have been based in Algeria, working for the British Council in Algiers, in charge of English programmes for the whole of Algeria.

“I have always passionately believed in the power of top-quality education. I have created Palm Tree Teaching Ltd to give the very best English language learning experience to individuals, corporate companies, embassies, ministries and private institutions as well as children, for a better future”.

“I am equally passionate about personally providing each of our clients with a completely flexible, tailor-made and bespoke service which we at Palm Tree Teaching Ltd, devise according to their specific needs”.
