Peter Onneweer
PRINCIPAL

Peter Onneweer

I am a graduate of Auckland University with 20 years' experience in English language teaching both New Zealand and overseas. My own experience of studying languages in other countries gives me a unique insight into both how languages are acquired and the challenges faced by second language learners. I am passionate about my students' success.
