Module Leader for EAP

I am Module Leader for English for EAP106 and EAP107. As a linguist, I have taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP), English for Business Studies (EBS), French and Spanish in a variety of educational establishments across Europe.

After teaching EAP in a school in Bordeaux, France, I went on to teach French at Cork University in Ireland. I then taught EAP at the University of Nantes in France for two years, after which I was appointed director and head teacher of a private language academy in Spain where I worked for six years.

I have taught French, Spanish and EAP at the University of Sunderland.

Teaching and supervision

I am module leader and teach on EAP106 Reading and Writing and EAP107 Listening and Speaking. I enjoy helping students to improve their English language skills so that they have the best possible support to excel in their course. I also teach the advanced EAP108 and EAP109.

 

Research

I am interested in the psychology of learning, pedagogical methods, collaborative learning strategies and different pedagogical approaches in learning.

 

I am a professional proofreader and have extensive experience of proofreading student and professional work from first year students to PhD level and academic publications.

I am also a qualified counsellor.
