My name is Vicky Loras and I am an English Teacher, born in the beautiful city of Toronto, Canada.
I have been teaching English as a foreign language and literature to students of all ages, since 1997. I now live in Switzerland and I am the co-founder and owner of The Loras English Network, a school I have opened with my sister Eugenia. We teach English, train teachers and also hold children’s events.
