Sara Helm    

Before becoming a language and culture trainer 20 something years ago, I gained an honours degree in International Business and worked in industry and corporate finance. In 1992, I qualified as an English as a Foreign Language teacher. Following that I travelled or worked in various parts of the UK, Europe and ‘Down Under’ moving to Bath in 2001.

In the last few years, I’ve enjoyed working on a number of books and web resources for teachers and learners. This includes two ESP titles: English for Accounting and Finance and English for Human Resources. I also contributed to the  Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra series and have most recently worked on a Business English course book series for colleges in the Middle East. 


Rebecca has taught English in Mexico and the Czech Republic but one of her most interesting teaching trips was to Tajikistan!

Rebecca is also a Business English author and teaches on the Teach Business English course. 




Sian worked as a lawyer both in the UK and Norway before becoming a language and culture trainer. 


Christian (one of the original UK tech whizz kids) provides our technical support and his vast knowledge of history (which he studied at university) on our (English for) History and Cultural Heritage course.
