Meet our team

Belinda Sydenham

Programme Manager/Facilitator

Belinda has worked in schools in New Zealand, Australia and Japan, teaching Japanese, French and ESOL to students from primary to upper secondary level for over 25 years. She enjoys working with teachers to develop their language teaching pedagogy, to make their lessons fun and engaging, and to enhance the learning outcomes for their students.


Belinda has worked for Team Solutions, ILEP, Future Learning Solutions, and now Tui Tuia as a facilitator for the past six years. She enjoys being able to work alongside teachers to allow them to grow professionally, and to feel more confident in their pedagogy. She can see her work as a bridge between the academic rigour of the University of Auckland and the reality of day-to-day classroom teaching. Belinda understands that every teacher has areas of expertise while knowing that there is always room for improvement, and that part of developing best-practice is also ensuring best outcomes for students in all language classrooms.
