Ceri Moss

I believe that the most important trait a child can have is a love of learning. With it, they may find confidence in their abilities and discover new and wonderful things about themselves and the world.

Ceri Moss graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in Education, English and Drama. Her studies focused on child development and educational inclusion in international contexts, with a special focus on reading acquisition and children’s literature. Having previously taught in Hong Kong, she seeks to bring her own enthusiasm for words to English language learning.

For many, it is also a big part of the nighttime routine that enables them to relax and have a screen break before bed. In research conducted in 3000 primary schools in England, daily storytime (reading aloud) increased children’s reading age by 13 months in just one term (Farshore,… Read More

Taking Ownership of your Learning Journey

I work with many students at key transitional stages, including those moving from primary to secondary, those relocating overseas, and those preparing for university.
