Nice to e-meet you!
I’m a freelance English Language Teaching (ELT) professional. I've been in the ELT industry for nearly 25 years and now work as an author, teacher, editor, and project manager.
I qualified with International House (IH) and have taught for IH in Italy, Hungary, New Zealand and the UK.
I then moved into ELT publishing and worked as a development editor at Pearson Education (Cutting Edge) and Oxford University Press (Headway and Exams).
I have a MSc in Applied Linguistics & Second Language Acquisition from the University of Oxford.
I've authored over ten ELT course books, including the best-selling Get Ready for IELTS and Speak Your Mind. The former was nominated for an ESU English Language Award and also won EL Gazette's Book of the Month.
I specialise in beginners/lower levels (pre-A1-A2), Speaking skills, and Exams.
I'm a fan of all things ELT, and am always happy to chat about issues related to education, linguistics, and publishing.
I'm also the Chair of the Society of Authors'
