How can I help Learning Developers?
I am experienced in working within teams and I have mentored several colleagues who were new to teaching academic skills or working in Higher Education. I also specialise in working with non-native English speakers, as I have studied English grammar and linguistics, as well as teaching English as a foreign language. I work with a large number of students that come from a widening participation background and I am particularly experienced at working with students with disabilities and providing them academic support.
