I’m an English language teacher and teacher trainer working at International House London.
As a language teacher, my interests are grammar, materials development, learner language, critical thinking, visualisation and creativity. I also enjoy attending and speaking at conferences and have published articles for ETP, The Teacher Trainer, Folio and HLT magazine. My first book, ‘Teaching Grammar: from rules to reasons’ was published by Pavilion Publishing in December 2016. It was shortlisted for a British Council ELTON in Teaching Innovation in 2018.
This website is a place for me to host ideas, articles, materials and conference presentations. From April 2018, I will also share lessons contributed by teachers who have used the approaches and techniques outlined in my book and conference talks. These can be found by clicking the ‘lesson share’ link above. I hope you enjoy these lessons and can contribute yourself.
