Biography

Job at CELFS:  EAP Teacher

Programme/courses I teach on:  I teach on the International Foundation Programme (IFP) and the Academic Language and Literacy (ALL) courses.  I also teach on the pre-sessional (PS) summer programme.

 

Profile:  

I have been teaching English for over 20 years for a number of institutions, in the UK as well as in Italy and Spain.  Before moving to Bristol in 2015, I worked at International House London for 9 years where I held various roles, including EAP Tutor for the University Foundation Programme, Teacher Trainer for CELTA and Delta courses, Assistant Director of Training and IELTS examiner.  I have also written materials for several course development projects.

 

 

Interests:  

Having worked as an online tutor on distant and blended courses, I am interested in how different VLEs can be used to connect people worldwide and enhance learning.  Other research interests include textual analysis and teaching lexically.  In terms of personal interests, I like sport, literature and theatre, although most of my free time is spent running around after two young children! However, I play for a local netball team and I have just started coaching my son’s football team.
