I’m a teacher, teacher trainer and materials writer with over 30 years experience in English language teaching. I have taught students of all ages and levels, from very young children to adults.
My interest in early years and primary education grew after having my own children. I became fascinated by child development, bilingualism, and foreign language teaching and learning in mainstream education – all areas which continue to be central to my work today.
My experience includes teaching, teacher training and academic management posts in Venezuela, Portugal and Spain. I have also published extensively in the field of teaching English to young learners.
I currently work as a writer and international educational consultant advising on pre-primary and primary foreign language programmes, and delivering customised teacher education courses. I am also a former President of IATEFL
