Megan Wummer
Course Director

NationalityAmerican

QualificationsCambridge DELTA; TEFL Certificate with specializations in Teaching Business English, Young Learners, and Grammar; BA Spanish & Italian

ExperienceOver 10 years’ experience in ELT and Teacher Training

I began volunteering as an ESL teacher in the United States and quickly discovered that teaching was my passion. In 2009 I moved abroad to Europe and began teaching EFL in companies, bilingual schools, and academies in Italy and Spain. I later moved into academic management where I coordinated in-house teacher training. When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me doing yoga, cooking, or enjoying Rome’s cultural and gastronomical offering. I look forward to sharing my passion and enthusiasm for Rome and teaching with you on the Trinity CertTESOL course!

Maeri Meusnier
Office Manager
Qualifications:

BA in foreign languages (English & Italian), MA in Cultural Management & Multilingual Communication.

Experience:

Passionate about languages, I always dreamt about working in a multicultural environment. After studying in Rome in 2018, I fell in love with this beautiful city and decided that I wanted to settle down here for a while. Apart from languages, I love to spend some time in the historical centre or at the beach, but also to dance salsa! I look forward to welcoming you at our school in Rome!

Nationality: Polish

Qualifications:

Cambridge DELTA, Cambridge CELTA, MA English Philology (TEFL), BA English Philology (linguistics)  

Experience:

  Over 10 years’ experience in ELT and Teacher Training teaching in Poland, UK, Spain and Italy. I started teaching English when I was in high school and quickly discovered it was my thing. Doing a Certificate in ELT made it possible for me to work abroad and teach English in different places and work with many fascinating people. While I was working as a Senior Teacher in a language school in Poland, I decided to raise my qualifications and do Cambridge DELTA. This has been a challenging yet very rewarding experience. During my teaching career, I have been working in summer schools, language schools and at university teaching General English, Business English, EAP, Cambridge Exam and Young Learners classes. As a Teacher Trainer, I have been working in the beautiful cities of Malaga and Rome. What I like most about teacher training is meeting new interesting and enthusiastic people who I can hopefully infect with my passion for teaching English!
