About this site

I’m an English language teacher, online tutor and author. I teach on the online MATESOL program of the New School in New York. I was born in London but I live in Barcelona, Spain.

All six levels of the new (young) adult series published by Richmond are now available. The course is called The Big Picture. There is also an American English edition available.

Previously, I have co-written an adult coursebook series for students ‘New Framework’ for Richmond and a methodology handbook for English teachers called ‘Working with Images’.

In addition, check out these other titles of mine: Richmond’s relaunched New American Framework series and another coursebook, co-written with Adrian Doff, for Cambridge University Press, English Unlimited Advanced.

I travel widely, talking to teachers about my work and listening to their needs and interests. My main area of interest at the moment lies in images and their role in language teaching.  Other ELT issues that concern me are English as a Lingua Franca, encouraging intercultural awareness and using video and literary texts. For this reason, I have started this website and blog to upload some ideas and share them with you. Thanks for passing by…
