Personal profile

Biography

I joined the University of Huddersfield in September 2014 as an Associate Lecturer of Professional English in the Department of Languages (School of Music, Humanities and Media). In May 2016, I took up an additional part-time role as Academic Skills Tutor in the School of Human and Health Sciences.                                                                                                

Prior to starting at Huddersfield, I worked at various UK universities as both a Lecturer of English for Academic/Professional Purposes [EAP] and Academic Skills. As EAP/Academic Skills Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University from 2011-14, I delivered Pre-sessional and In-sessional EAP/Academic Skills courses, as well as a Foundation Year module in Linguistics, Language and Culture and commercial courses in IELTS preparation and teacher-training. I also taught English in Portugal over a 10 year period, culminating in a role as Professional (Off-site) Courses Coordinator at the British Council in Lisbon from 2007-10.
