I am a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Academic Centre for International Students, part of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Southampton.

I trained as an actress and worked mainly in Theatre in Education before starting a new career in TEFL over 20 years ago.  I taught English in a variety of settings around the world with the British Council where I also worked in a number of managerial roles.   I am particularly interested in the use of drama and role-play for language learning and pronunciation and have designed and delivered courses for teachers in Thailand, Spain and England. I also co- founded an English through drama company in Madrid which is still running successfully to this day.

I joined the University in 2007 and initially worked on the WSA Pre-sessional as a teacher and Director of Studies.  Since then I have been involved in leading and teaching on the Pre-sessional programmes, and teaching and coordinating on in-sessional courses.

Research interests

My pedagogical research interests focus around the use of role-play in language teaching.

Current roles include:

·         Module coordinator and teacher for English stage 5.

·         Teacher on the speaking and confidence component of the academic skills module on the International Foundation year.

·         Speaking tutor for the EAS programme

·         Listening and speaking coordinator for the Pre-sessional

·         In-sessional support tutor
