Meet Tristan Palmer, our Academic Manager!

With over 220 students enrolled at any given time and new plans for expansion always on the horizon, ES Dubai is an exciting hub of activity and English language learning.

 

As Academic Manager and teacher at ES Dubai, Tristan’s days are mostly spent ensuring the smooth running of teaching operations. He manages the weekly student intake, timetabling, classing, student speaking assessments and also provides support to the teaching staff when necessary.

 

Tristan moved to Dubai in January this year to join ES and already finds himself at home in the school’s multicultural environment. “I am thrilled to be a part of the ES Dubai team, working alongside a vibrant group of dedicated teachers and staff,” he says. “A family forever smiling and growing.”

 

With an interesting international background, Tristan is a perfect fit for ES Dubai’s diverse community of staff and students. Originally English, he graduated from school in Bahrain and from university in South Africa. Tristan then moved back to England in 2013 and worked as Study Center Manager at Kaplan International English in Bournemouth and then as Director of Studies at St. Giles Juniors’ Summer programme in Oxford. Tristan is hoping to continue his DELTA course along the way.

 

What does he love most about living in Dubai? “The sun is always on my back, the sky is always blue and there are always exciting new places to discover,” says Tristan. “I enjoy the mix of culture and contexts, new and old. It is a hub of opportunity and a unique working world to be part of.”
