Area(s) of Responsibility
Teaching English language and culture, intercultural competence, academic skills, business English and creativity. Developing materials and resources for bespoke courses.
My professional interests include promoting student autonomy, integrating technology into the classroom, improving transcultural communication, and instilling students with greater confidence in their academic studies.
For the past few years I have been working in Higher Education in the UK, working on pre-sessional and post-graduate in-sessional programmes. Prior to this, I taught in Vietnam for three years where I worked for the British Council teaching a mix of General English and IELTS preparation courses. I also worked in Lisbon, Portugal for three years where I taught General English, Cambridge preparation classes, and Business English in the Portuguese national bank. My academic background is in English Literature, and Education. I hold a Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (DipTESOL).
