About

I’ve been working in ELT for over twenty years, having taught English and trained teachers in various countries. For the time being, I am working as a Teacher Trainer, Education Consultant, Educational Publishing Editor, Oxford Teachers’ Academy Trainer, Cambridge English Speaking Examiner and a freelance ESL marerials writer. Throughout the years, I have taught from primary through high school to adult courses along with exam preparation classes. I have given educational consultancy and done academic planning for high school students. I have worked for various ELT publishers and have taught under and postgraduate teacher training courses.

Through such various interactions, I have broad experience of language teaching to all age groups, training language and subject teachers and preparing students for academic exams. I am also experienced in ELT and education management and have worked as the head of English departments at numerous institutions.

I have a BA in English Language Teaching, an MA in Applied Linguistics and presently I am pursuing my PhD studies in Linguistics. I am an approved Oxford Teachers’ Academy trainer and have attended many other certificate programmes on teacher training, ELT and education management, learning technologies and international exams.

I’m mainly interested in professional development courses for teachers and administrators in English-medium school and university contexts.  I also help institutions through, consultancy work for ELT and education departments, organising seminars for Education Specialists and also giving academic support and supervision to students studying for higher degrees. My academic research is varied and diverse, mainly focusing on analysing the lexical formation of language and the influence of various interactions in communicative language learning.
