Educator with 20 years academic experience working with diverse students, including international students and adult migrants. I hold a PhD in Cultural Studies.

Methodology

I work with a student's strengths, focusing on their learning process and intended outcomes within a learner's own context. I apply methods which encourage student questioning and critical understandings. My sessions are often student led and involve lots of interaction.

Background

I have taught in Australian universities since 1999 in communication and media studies, cultural studies, arts and in ESL. I am widely published and have taught in Hong Kong and in VET. My students achieve excellent results in their studies.
