I have 25 years of experience teaching in a variety of contexts, from teaching young learners to teaching general English, academic and exam classes to international students and literacy to adults. Along with my teaching career I have now had 13 years of teacher training experience, which has taken me to the UK, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand and now Australia.
Training teachers is both challenging and rewarding. I love getting to know each individual, and being a part of helping each person to achieve their goals. I enjoy helping teachers understand grammar and become more student centred and effective. Recently I have developed a teaching model based on using discussions to develop better thinking and language for academic purposes. I am also an experienced IELTS and OET tutor.
