I have worked in TESOL for over 16 years, including six years overseas in Prague, Paris and Budapest. I have worked in several public and private institutions and have also been a partner in an English language teaching company in Budapest.
I've been working in the TESOL department at Sheffield Hallam for over six years. Over the last two years, I developed the Long English for Academic Purposes course and have worked closely with students from a variety of countries including Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Libya and China.
I'm also an examiner for IELTS/Cambridge FCE, CAE and BEC.
