THE BUZZ TEAM

Meet our lovely teachers

Isla

United Kingdom
One of my favourite things to talk about is films and TV shows – my dream job would be a film critic so I could just write all day about them. But my interests go way beyond just this such as politics, business, economics, history, technology, fashion, literature, design, languages… Too many to write!

Ned

Hello everyone! Along with teaching, I do research on Russia and Eurasia. I'm also a European champion in Ultimate Frisbee, which is a sport you've probably never heard of. My other interests include photography, soccer, hiking, politics, traveling, reading, and many more.

Mike

Hi y’all! I’m what you call outdoorsy. I really like winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding. I also skate and play hockey. I regularly do calisthenics and am working on the handstand pushup right now. In my free time, I also play online chess.
