About Ruth Martins

I am a qualified native British teacher with a vast experience and huge passion for teaching English online.
I am also an executive director at the Online English Language School "The White Apple Company" (


I finished my degree in the late nineties at the University of Surrey, I decided to go travelling.

As I’d always known from an early age that I wanted to be an English teacher, I decided to get my CELTA qualification as this would allow me to combine my two passions in life - teaching and travelling.

Once I gained the qualification, I joined a European Educational company with a number of schools located in France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

This enabled me to get cultural and professional experience through working in the different locations over a number of years.

In the last location, I also had the opportunity to work as a School director and Teacher Trainer.

When I returned to the UK to have a family I trained as an ESOL (English for Speakers of other languages) and worked in colleges, helping immigrants not only to learn English but also to develop the cultural skills that would enable them to fully integrate in their local communities.

I also qualified as a translator and interpreter and was able to work very closely with the local authorities. I am also a certified Cambridge examiner.

I decided to take a career break 8 years ago in order to develop my managerial skills and worked as a Senior Manager with a non-profit organisation providing care and support for the vulnerable living in the community.

Finally 5 years ago, my passion for teaching became too strong and I returned to teaching, this time online.

I love online teaching. It’s very practical, convenient and I believe it to be the best way to create a close and successful relationship with the student.
