The untold spy story of WWI

In 1910 a proposed Alliance between Germany and France (See New York Times Article ) worried Britain so they sent someone to 'sniff around'.

The story is a personal journey of discovery set in the vibrant energy that is Zanzibar. Susan finds herself in the palace of the great Sultan of Zanzibar as private tutor to his children. She immerses herself in the heady experiences of that rich island. From making friends with her personal servant, Subira, to falling in love with Asim, a senior member of the Sultan's court. Susan delights in the discovery of Zanzibar and the discovery of herself. The only shadow being that she was recruited by British Military Intelligence as a spy. That compromises her love for Asim and will eventually cut the silken thread that is her journey into the exotic.

Teach in China


Teaching Nomad

Teaching Nomad was founded on the basis of connecting great teachers with the great schools in China.

After moving to Shanghai, our founder, Brett, discovered a need to fill the gap between these two groups. The school’s reputation relies on its teachers. The teachers must put their trust into their school as they brave moving to a new country. Neither group wants to be let down.

Teaching Nomad is here to take all the guesswork out of the equation and make every ones job a little bit easier. Brett, having traveled through many countries also truly understands the positive impact that experiencing the world has on an individual and sees Teaching Nomad as his way of helping teachers to accomplish that.
