Meet The Team!


Valeria Ponce

 Hey there!

I'm Valeria and I am the founder of this company. I decided to move to Poland in July 2013 and thought I would stay in Poland for 6 months. Little did I know that I would find my passion, which is teaching English.  Since then, I have been working as a tutor, traveling around Europe and  meeting incredible people. Now, I live in Denver, Colorado. Here, I love to do lots of different things, including: hiking, rock climbing, cooking and reading (of course!).


Melissa McLaughlin


I am Melissa, an English native living in England. I have been teaching English in schools since 2014.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, taking our beloved dog for walks and watching movies (anything with superheroes!) 


Yasmin Benn


I'm Yazz, an English native living in Budapest, Hungary. I am currently working for a marketing company named Liligo. My free time is largely spent playing with dogs. I like to broaden my horizons every so often by going to the theater, attending world events and cooking for friends (only the ones who have dogs!).


Brooke Austin

Hi there,

I am originally from sunny Florida and (obviously) love the warm weather. Valeria and I went to the same high school, so we go back many years!
In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, singing, and creating art. I have a young son. And I recently got engaged to a wonderful man. So I’m so excited to get married!
