Dirk Figueiredo Image

Dirk Figueiredo

Prior to joining The London School of English, Dirk used to work in his native land, Brazil, for a major US airline. He always strives to give a personal touch to whatever he does - going the extra mile just to put a bit of character out there; whether it’s in his emails or in the Skype calls he conducts with clients. Dirk speaks Portuguese, English, Spanish and he can get by with Hebrew. He used to be a dance teacher – Israeli Folk dancing to be specific. He’s still dancing, alas, no longer teaching.

Scott Bushell Image

Scott Bushell

Seen in our Canterbury centre, Scott is a former teacher turned Market Manager – although he can occasionally be seen teaching the odd class or two. Scott has lived many lives - he was previously an actor and knows the best book for voice and accent training, 'Great Expectations' by the revered Charles Dickens. He says that he is the descendant of Sherlock Holmes, but we're a bit skeptical about that!

Faeza Afzal Image

Faeza Afzal

Born and raised in Saudi Arabia, Faeza is a global nomad with a career spanning banking, higher education and edtech. A Bangladeshi-Canadian, she studied at the University of Oxford and worked in Jeddah, Canada and London. Faeza’s diverse background allows her to bring an international perspective to her professional roles. Self-professed to having itchy feet, Faeza is often travelling and finds the best way to discover a new culture is to eat it. A few samples do make it back to the office.
