I first taught English pre-sessional courses at the University of Leeds in the summer of 2013, and have been continuously teaching throughout the academic year since spring 2017.
I teach and develop materials on a variety of Language Centre courses, working collaboratively with colleagues across the University to facilitate the successful transition of international pre-sessional and foudnation year students onto undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.

Having worked for the University on collaborative projects in China, I take a great interest in intercultural curriculum development and the internationalisation of higher education.
With my background in state school education, I am very interested in pedagogical issues concerning schools particularly with regard to ESL students and education policy, particularly in the United Kingdom.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
