Tutor in English as a Foreign Language
Friday 9:30am - 11:00am
I began my teaching career in secondary schools before changing direction and spending seven years teaching English to adults in Sweden, Portugal and Italy, mainly with the British Council. I returned to the UK in order to take a Masters degree at Manchester University in 1994, and then joined the staff at Salford in 1995.
I have taught on a wide range of courses here at Salford, including pre-sessional and in-sessional language support from short tailor-made summer courses to the main year-round programmes. For the last few years my woork has been focused on the English Study Programme.
I am particulary intersted in observing real speech and investigating its implications for teaching materials. This was the area of research for my Masters dissertation.
