Print publications and online learning

I have produced a very wide range of materials for major publishers and other international organisations. Being an editor as well as a writer makes me very aware of the importance of submitting material in a well-developed state, and my first drafts are often accepted without need for a second draft. My work is informed by over 20 years of teaching experience in several countries, and I believe that it exhibits creative flair and innovative elements while being based on trusted methodologies and a pragmatic approach to the realities of the classroom. I also have skills in page design, website design and illustration which can be helpful in my ELT materials development work - MORE DETAILS. My writing commissions include:
