We are a group of young motivated and qualified, with a lot of energy, originating from New Zealand United States, United Kingdom and all over the world.

Hello, I'm
Maria Perrone

Bachelors of Electrical Engineering
University Of Canterbury (2003 - 2008)

I come from New Zealand and have always loved learning! I am fascinated by how the world works and I love discovering new information to share with our students. I enjoy applying drama and improvisation activities to English lessons to encourage genuine, fun and memorable communication.

I collaborate with our teachers to create exciting creative projects  for our students. The reward is seeing them light up with enthusiasm and passion as they discover their own strengths and abilities.

We are proud to be helping our students become confident in speaking English and see what opportunities await them.

Hello, I'm
Eugene Marsden

B.F.A Film & B.Sc Computer Science
University Of Canterbury (2003 - 2008)

I come from New Zealand and studied filmmaking and graphic design there before moving to Italy (mostly for the food!). I’m a father, runner, programmer and I’m very proud of my culture.

I help my students reach their potential and I like to motivate them with special challenges, multimedia projects, real-world examples and lots of laughter. I respect all of my students and appreciate that every person learns differently and all are capable of great things.

I genuinely love what I do and am grateful to be able to watch my students find joy in learning English and the confidence to take on the world!

Creative English hires teachers from all around the world!

OUR FUTURE PLANS

What's Next For Us

This is what we have in mind for Creative English. Our goal is to make teaching and learning easier for all.

Creative Lessons

Expected Completed Date: September 2020
F

irst project to be developed is to build a lesson planning area for teachers to plan and organise ideas, which is currently in progress. We have a large library of resources and would like to share them with you. We know that each class and lesson is unique so, rather than just choosing from templates, we will make a space were you can mix and match (and even add) different games, worksheets and activities to 'build' the perfect lesson to meet your specific lesson needs.

Your Ideas

Expected Completed Date: November 2020
W

e believe the global community of teachers can only benefit from collaborating and supporting each other. We know there are thousands of inspired teachers with their own creative ideas for making engaging and fun lessons. We're going to create a place on this website for teachers to share ideas, contribute, answer questions and inspire each other. We'll even custom make worksheets for you on request - just describe what you need and we'll make it for you!

Mobile Application

Expected Completed Date: March 2021
T

o support our students better, we're creating a mobile phone application where they can keep track of their lesson appointments, review lesson plans and homework assignments. All of their account details will be easy to access, at their fingertips.

Tests For Students

Expected Completed Date: June 2021
O

ur plan is to make our extensive library of homework exercises and practice tests available for students. Students can complete exercises online and get all the practice they need to feel confident at any level. Self study is an important part of the learning process but will always be boosted by interactive lessons with an enthusiastic and well prepared teacher.
