What our Tutors have to say about themselves:
Ms. Missy Blanchard
I’m from the United States and I do face to face CELTAs around the world. Apart from my experience in US and Canada I have also worked in a number of Middle Eastern, South Asian and European countries. From the Academic Director of Projects at American Lebanese Centre in Beirut I have just landed in Boston for a course. I have tutored a lot of Pakistanis in these countries and it has been a great experience. Now I am looking forward to visit Pakistan for the first time and I am really enthusiastic about doing a course at ICD. The best thing about it all is that I love what I do and know that I am incredibly lucky to be able to say that.
Ms. Jacqueline Hadel
I am a Native American National and not the one to write about myself in third person so I would just tell you who I am as is. My experience working in Education has focused on English language teaching to speakers of other languages and teacher training and development. My academic qualifications include a Master in Education from Clemson University and Certificate in Online Learning and Teaching. I am an accredited CELTA Trainer but I am also a world traveler, blogger, photographer, and author. At the moment, apart from doing CELTAs around the world, I am specializing in documentation of street art and graffiti around the world. You will find me to be a positive and energetic teacher trainer who believes in “enjoying the process.” I am absolutely thrilled about doing a course in Pakistan at ICD and looking forwarding to meeting you all.
I am an international English Language teacher trainer and a globally recognized CELTA & DELTA tutor. Having six years of CELTA teaching experience, I have taught at many international education Institutes including ones in Thailand, USA and Latvia. I have been the Director of Cambridge Center Grade Education Center Kyiv, Ukraine as well as the Director of Studies at English school: Speak Up, Learning Systems Ukraine, Kyiv. I have also spent time in IHNY Summer Camp at International House New York, USA, a while ago; before working with the Pakistani ELT community at ICD.

A study of 600 English language teaching job adverts in over 60 countries has revealed that Cambridge Assessment English’s CELTA is the qualification most often requested by employers.
CELTA is requested by 71.5 percent of employers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, compared to just 23.6 percent asking for CELTA’s nearest equivalent the Trinity CertTESOL.* The data from the study further reveals that, in the UK, 88 percent of jobs that require an ELT qualification specifically ask for a CELTA qualification.
