BA (Hons) English Studies (First Class) – English Language, TESOL, English Literature and Creative Writing


I have been teaching English as a Second or Other Language / English for Academic Purposes at the USW (formerly known as the University of Glamorgan) since 2010. Previously, I have taught ESOL / EAP at a variety of private English Language schools in Cardiff. In my dissertation, I performed a detailed grammatical analysis of native and non-native English speakers’ language within electronic communications, as I was interested to discover the effect of new technology, such as text messaging, on second language learning. I have a keen interest in recent developments in teaching Academic English as well as the use of new technology both in and out of the classroom.
