Biography

I have extensive experience as a language teacher and as a teacher educator. I have taught English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Spanish to a wide variety of students in the UK and abroad. I have also undertaken teaching, mentoring and assessment in various postgraduate courses where I have facilitated teachers' learning of general principles of education, educational management and research.

My qualifications include a DELTA and an MA in English Language Teaching (ELT) from Nottingham Trent University and at the moment I am undertaking post-graduate studies for the Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) at the University of Nottingham.

I work as a part-time Associate tutor in the School of Education where I support newly qualified and/or experienced teachers who are undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Education International (PGCEi). I currently work on the Nottingham cohort [Nottingham 4 and 6] but have also worked with the PGCEi Dubai cohort [Dubai 7]. In addition to this, I teach ESOL to refugees, asylum seekers and settled migrants with limited formal schooling in a local college.

Current Research

My doctoral research, which draws on semi-structured interviews, ethnographic research and Photo-voice stories, provides an account of how migrant female spouses from India and Pakistan with low levels of literacy or limited formal schooling relate to notions of transnational migration, citizenship and agency and how these concepts are connected to their identities, language and literacy practices.
