I am a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Academic Centre for International Students, part of the Faculty of Arts & Humanities at the University of Southampton.
I graduated from the University of Southampton with BA Hons in German with Linguistic and Language Studies, during which time I spent a year in Upper Austria teaching English at a school. I then completed a TESOL certificate and went on to teach in a language school for 2 years. In 2004, I graduated from the University of Southampton with MA in English Language Teaching. In 2019 I was awarded Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (now the Advanced HE) and in 2021 I was nominated for a Vice-Chancellor's Award as part of the Pre-sessional Team in the Teaching Innovation category. I am also a mentor on the University Mentoring Programme.
