Educational Background

Master of Arts in Language Teaching and Learning (University of Auckland, NZ)


I started teaching at Unitec Institute of Technology in NZ in 1995 and later taught at United Arab Emirates University in Al Ain in the UAE for 8 years. Following this, I spent a year back in NZ teaching at ARA Institute of Canterbury, before moving to Singapore at the onset of COVID, where I have taught at Nanyang Technological University. For the past two semesters I have been teaching online for WKU.


I have taught ESL from Beginners to Advanced levels, Foundation, Diploma and General Education programs, and been a Program Director, an IELTS examiner and an Academic Advisor. I really enjoy helping people learn and make progress in their lives.
