Bio:

I have been a university lecturer of English for 25 years and specialize in English for General and Academic Purposes. I hold a BA degree in TEFL and an MA degree in linguistics; thus, I have a profound insight into the system of language and the process of language acquisition. I have lived in Germany, the UK and Cyprus

My teaching methodology:
As a highly experienced language teacher, I aim to design a course syllabus that accommodates specific learner objectives, different student needs and learner styles and different contexts. What this means is that each lesson will essentially be designed depending on your goals, needs and your style of learning, e.g. we may focus on communicative fluency or on linguistic accuracy, or both.
My teaching background:

I have been teaching English to adults for more than 25 years, in both academic and professional settings. I've had the opportunity to teach a variety of courses in academic English across the disciplines at university-level with a focus on critical reading and writing skills. For the past few years, I have been teaching courses in theoretical linguistics and research writing at undergraduate level.

My background outside of teaching:

I have worked as an administrator at university language departments and have held the post of Testing, Evaluation and Curriculum Development Consultant. As an academic, I have had the opportunity to publish and present my research in linguistics internationally.
