Nice to meet you!

I’m an author, editor, teacher, and teacher trainer in the field of English Language Teaching (ELT). I taught English, French, and Japanese for over 20 years in Asia, Africa, and the US. My MA in TESL is from the School for International Training in Vermont.

I currently write and edit English language teaching materials and textbooks, and conduct teacher training workshops. My areas of specialty and interest include teaching writing, teaching reading, business English, academic English, testing, and humor. I’m a frequent plenary speaker at international conferences, and do online webinars and trainings as well.

Feel free to browse around the site to learn more about what I do. If you want to contact me, you can message me here or find me on social media.
