More about me…
I currently teach at an international school, see here for details. Before that I was a teacher, writer and course coordinator with the British Council.
I have a CELTA (A), DipTESOL (Distinction), MA through NILE (Distinction) and a PGCEi (Distinction). Feel free to get in touch for advice on these courses. Before teaching, I studied an MSc in Reading, Language and Cognition.
I’ve contributed to over 20 published ELT resources. Contributions include authoring coursebooks, workbooks, digital supps and copy editing. Here are some projects I’ve enjoyed working on recently…
I’ve also worked with Peachey Publications on a popular e-book (co-authored with Rich McCully)
I have written for industry magazines such as English Teaching Professional, Modern English Teacher, EFL Magazine, The Teacher, IH Journal and IATEFL Voices. Selected examples:
- Classroom research into error correction. ETPro, 2015.
- Reflections on implementing a teacher development programme (with Sarah Smith, eltonix). ETPro, 2016.
- Reflections on materials writing. MET, 2016
- Action research on using digital flashcards. MET, 2018
