After completing my TEFL certificate I taught English in the UK, Spain and Poland before moving to Japan where I worked for 12 years teaching EAP in several Japanese Universities. I was also an IELTS examiner and examiner trainer. After returning to the UK in 2008, I began working at the Language Centre, Leeds and have taught on many of the programmes at both pre-undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including International Foundation Year and Academic English for Business.
