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/low 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 on the committee for the
Society of Authors Educational Writers Group.
