Having worked at Wits University for over 35 years in English teacher education, I am now a part-time academic, writer and consultant.

I trained as a both a literary scholar and an applied linguist, with expertise in language education and literacy – particularly critical literacy.

I have knowledge and experience in:

  • materials development
  • teacher education
  • language policy
  • multilingual classrooms and
  • the teaching of grammar, reading and writing.

I also have experience in Higher Education and a particular interest in academic publishing and postgraduate pedagogies.

I received my undergraduate, Honours and Masters degrees from Wits University and my PhD from Lancaster University.
