What is your area of expertise within ELT? I really enjoy studying corpus linguistics

What do you like to do in your free time? I love to read, practise yoga and walk my golden retriever.

If you could live in any country in the world, which one would it be?  Why? I would love to live in San Francisco again. I spent 3 months there on a J1 and fell in love with the city. I felt it was a very progressive society, relaxed yet exciting, an amazing place to be. I’ve never felt more welcome anywhere in the world.

What do you love most about your job? I love the satisfaction of helping a student understand a problem that they’ve struggled with. Witnessing a student’s eureka moment is a great feeling.
