English for Academic Purposes

I teach English for Academic Purposes at INTO Newcastle University on a variety of programmes:

  • In-sessional
  • Pre-sessional
  • English for University Studies / Academic English
  • International Year One – Business

Currently, I am Acting Deputy Programme Manager on the In-sessional programme for Newcastle University students.

My main interest in the field of EAP is in academic writing, specifically the relationship between writers and their readers. This includes authorial stance and voice, audience awareness, differences between disciplines and genres. It all boils down to: how do I convince my particular reader?

As a teacher of EAP, I am involved with BALEAP. I am a TEAP Fellow, regularly attend conferences and serve on the Executive Committee of BALEAP (2015-2020: Web Officer, since 2020: Treasurer).
