I am a professionally qualified English Language & Education specialist. I consider my mission as helping to facilitate and enable my students to fulfil their potential.
In addition to my former Human Resource Development (Training) certifications, I hold post-graduate qualifications in Education (PGCE) and have the Cambridge University Certification in English Language Teaching (CELTA). I am a member of the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP), and as a ‘life-long learner’ I am currently working toward my Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA)
I specialise in 3 discrete areas:
1. English Language Communication Coaching: which includes coaching international students in Academic and Business English and exam preparation, such as IELTS
2. Education & Training Consulting: working with public and private organisations to support both curriculum design and materials development for face-to-face and online provision
3. Teacher Tech: this includes helping with the design and development of logos, websites, newsletters, and e-learning
I have a successful track record in the universities, commercial enterprises, and government education departments, having worked in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. My clients and students come from all walks of life including university students to PhD level, business professionals and international English exam takers.
Now with more than 30+ years’ experience I am still totally passionate about what I do and believe that everyone has the potential to achieve great things.
I love the opportunities that platforms such as Udemy provide for both students and instructors.
I am a co-author on Udemy of Fun Reading With Phonics developed after 5 years training elementary level teachers in Malaysian state schools.
I very much look forward to working with you :-)
