I ran courses on ELT methodology, classroom observation, group dynamics or teaching English to dyslexic students. My professional interest includes supporting beginning teachers, mentor training and, more recently, educational leadership and professional burnout. I have extensive experience in designing and running workshops, seminars, and summer courses for teachers both in my home country and internationally.
As a freelance training consultant, I have worked in a variety of contexts in Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia through various agencies and programmes, like the British Council, Via Lingua or Oxford Teachers Academy. I enjoy meeting teachers working in different cultures and settings and so I am an avid conference-goer; I have attended and presented at conferences in some 20 countries.
When I don’t teach, I try to learn something new; I am a trained mediator and also enjoy participating in various online courses ranging from social psychology through painting to learning new languages.
