Jesse Maginnis

Jesse comes to the ESU with an MA in International Relations. Originally from the United States, he has a wealth of experience in English education both in China and Vietnam.

Jesse is enthusiastic about supplying students with the skills and tools to help young people succeed. As a former English and Drama teacher, he has seen first-hand how oracy skills can create confidence and assist students in their lives. He believes that proper communication and understanding between people is the first step to solving the issues of the world.

Outside work, Jesse enjoys history walks in London, local concerts, and watching ice hockey with his friends.
