Current teaching position

EFL instructor at a German university.

Previous teaching experience

EFL teacher/instructor in corporate training, language schools, universities in Germany and at the University of Kent in Canterbury.

1. Best thing about teaching?

Working with students, following them through their degree, and seeing them graduate and knowing I contributed to their achievement.

2. Best city you've ever visited/lived in? 


3. A song you listen to when happy/sad? 

Benjamin Britten's  A young person's guide to the orchestra (happy). Gabriel Fauré's Pavane (sad)

4. Biggest education inspiration? 

Professor Fred Eckman: the best I have ever had during my studies, and that was when I said, 'I want to be able to teach like that'. He had the knowledge, the personalty and actually knew how to teach. Not forgetting my teachers in secondary school: they didn't give up on me and look where I am!

All things EFL.

6. Favourite TTR guest (on one of your shows)

Harry Waters.

7. Favourite TTR episode (of yours) so far and why? 

The 5-paragraph essay with Nigel Caplan - something we're both passionate about.

8. Your teaching philosophy?

Being a teacher is not what I do, it is who I am - Jill Biden said this, and this is totally me.

9. Best bit of advice you ever got?

Whatever it is, this too shall pass.
