Since joining the University of Leeds in 2014 I have taught undergraduates and postgraduates on a variety of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) programmes at the Language Centre.
I was programme designer and leader for Language for Business Management and Enterprise from 2016 – 2018; a programme which prepared students for postgraduate study at Leeds University Business School, School of Civil Engineering, School of Design and School of Music.
My current role is divided between the School of Music and the Language Centre. I am module leader for an English for Specific Academic Purposes programme for postgraduate students in the School of Music and I teach on general EAP programmes for postgraduate students in the Language Centre.
Before 2014 I was involved in teaching as an English language teacher, English for Specific Purposes teacher and secondary school teacher in many different contexts in the UK and Italy.
