Personal Profile

I first came to the English Language Centre as a teacher on a summer course in 2011; I came back in 2012 and stayed. I'm now Curriculum Coordinator on the English Language Centre's Summer Pre-Sessional and Academic Language and Communication (ALC) courses, and I also teach on ALC courses and on various other English Language Centre courses. My academic background is in Philosophy and Religious Studies, and my main professional interests these days are in the teaching of academic writing and in 'critical thinking' (whatever that is).
