Caroline McHugh

My love for language learning started when I was a pupil at Harrogate Grammar School. I went on to study French with Italian at the University of Warwick and spent a year teaching in Nantes, France, and time as an Au Pair in both Paris and in the Veneto region of Italy.

Since completing my PGCE at the University of York, I have worked at two top independent boarding schools, where I enjoyed teaching French and Italian to pupils aged 10-18. We moved back to Harrogate to start a family and we now have two under two who keep me very busy when I'm not private tutoring or teaching.
