Hilary Denholm – Head Teacher
I’ve taught on all the different programs that we offer at SELC and I’m now Head Teacher at SELC, so I get to meet all the students and help new students to settle in. It also means that I liaise with all the teachers and other staff to make sure that things run smoothly and that students and teachers are happy. This gives me lots of variety in my job, and that’s great!
Nick Nolan – Cambridge Teacher
Working with language is something I’m very passionate about and being in an environment of great cultural diversity is what makes working at SELC a great experience.
Grace Fannon – Senior Teacher
Rom Hall – Academic English Coordinator & Counsellor
After searching for a well-established school in Australia, I started working at SELC in 2004, and studied at Sydney’s Macquarie University for a Masters degree in Linguistics the following year.
As a result of my experiences as an international student, I became the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) coordinator at SELC in 2007, and I am now also the SELC academic counsellor. I still enjoy helping students, so feel free to visit me for some friendly educational advice!

Bert Colombi – Barista & General English Teacher
I regularly come into contact with students and marvel at how lucky I am to be in such a rewarding and fulfilling job, meeting people from all countries and cultures and being considered as a friend and confidant by them.
I am currently teaching the Barista course and helping to run the school cafe – so if you want to say hi over a Cappuccino or Latte – I’ll be there with a hot drink waiting for you.
I look forward to meeting you if you come to SELC!

Simon Harris – Senior Teacher
At SELC I’ve taught every level from Beginners to Advanced as well as Business English, IELTS, Cambridge and even ECSC- the Barista course, which is very interesting! I don’t really prefer one kind of class- every class has something new and exciting in it!
In my spare time I sing and when we practise it makes me think of the classroom… I can understand what it feels like to be a student!
Christian Mullins – Barista, General English & Cambridge Teacher
I also help run the SELC cafe when I’m not teaching General English and Cambridge and there’s nothing I love more than seeing my students succeed and excel.
Erica Barlow – General English & Cambridge Teacher
I think Sydney is a great place to learn English and I look forward to meeting more students on their adventure here. The only difficult thing for me is working out how to fit in work with going on holiday to all the wonderful places the students tell me about!
