Hello, my name is Nicki Jones and I have been teaching Teeline shorthand for over 18 years. I learned Teeline in secretarial college and used it extensively for the first part of my career as a Secretary and Personal Assistant within the insurance industry. I then took an unexpected opportunity to teach shorthand, qualified as a teacher and never looked back.
I am an absolute shorthand enthusiast and love all aspects of the shorthand process; taking people from seeing strange squiggles to writing confident notes, the challenge of helping experienced writers gain faster and faster speeds, the satisfaction of bringing back long-lost theory to rusty writers, I enjoy it all.
I have taught a whole variety of people, from students studying on NCTJ courses at City College Brighton, University of Brighton, University of Portsmouth and University of Sussex, to journalists from local and national press who wanted to update their skill, to secretaries, admins and executive assistants who wanted to enhance their skills as part of their continuous professional development. I have even taught individuals who purely wanted to learn for their own personal interest as it’s such an intriguing skill.
