I have been teaching English as a foreign language and Business English in the UK and in Portugal since 2000. I joined the University of Portsmouth in 2010 and currently work as an English Language Support Tutor, having previously lectured on EAP, Business English and General Language courses. I also help run the Global Café, a weekly event for all university students which promotes cultural exchange and language practice. Formerly, I worked in industry as a Financial Accountant.
I am interested in theories of successful teaching instruction with particular emphasis on EAP. I am presently finishing an article on the implementation of teacher beliefs in the classroom, which will be ready for publication later this year. I also write EAP reference materials.
