Tim Ashurst

Director of Studies


BSC York

"I love the way that learning languages can allow learners to achieve existing ambitions, or open their eyes to new possibilities. In the classroom or when overseeing courses I enjoy drawing on the strengths, interests and energy of learners and setting up opportunities for individuals to be stimulated and challenged, so that they can enjoy learning and excel and grow."

Marta Barber
