Meet the Rollama team 👋

Hi, I'm Andrew. I co-founded Rollama with my wife in 2021. I was a teacher for 15 years between 2007 and 2022, in schools in England, Malaysia and China. Since August 2022, I've been focusing on Rollama full-time.

I was an Assistant Primary Head Teacher, Year 6 teacher (plus some secondary English), and worked with many wonderful children and teachers from all parts of the world.

We built Rollama to solve a problem we saw in our schools, particularly for students learning English as an additional language - how to help children practise English grammar, spelling, and punctuation in a fun and engaging way.

Rollama began as a simple classroom tool made in Excel (see our Museum), but soon we decided that it could help lots of teachers if we built a website with user accounts and interactive games.

We believe that English language learning can be accelerated through independent practice, both inside and outside the classroom, and that gamification is the most effective way to get young children persist and put in the time needed to understand the trickier parts of English and build fluent fundamentals.
