Professional biography

I have been teaching English to International students in many parts of the world since 1984 including Spain, Greece, Turkey, Argentina, Singapore and finally in Australia. I have taught all levels from beginners to advanced students and also Cambridge exam courses, Business English, EAP and IELTS preparation. Apart from that I have been involved in writing materials.
Having lived overseas myself and having to communicate in another language, I can appreciate the difficulties involved in learning another language as well as living and working with a second language.
