About Elin

Elin has taught Welsh to adults and children with Derby Welsh Learners’ Circle and Belper Welsh, as well as independently since 2006. She has a BA Hons in Welsh from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and an MA in Creative Writing from the Open University. 
Since face to face classes became difficult to arrange in 2020, Elin has placed her focus on creating Welsh learning material and courses and providing online lessons and workshops via Tyfu Cymraeg. 2022 sees the return of face to face classes, as well as the launch of Tyfu Cymraeg Courses. 
Elin is available for talks and workshops to corporate and social groups. She can also provide Welsh lessons for groups on an ongoing or one off basis depending on availability.
