M.A.

 

I was born and grew up in Birmingham, England. I love traveling and learning more about different cultures and languages, and I left England about 25 years ago. I first went to Amsterdam, Holland, where I lived for 5 years, and then I came to Asia, where I have lived ever since - first in Japan, and then India, Thailand and China. I have taught English in Asia for over 10 years, and I now specialize in teaching academic English.

 

In 2010, I graduated from Payap University, in Thailand, with a Master''s in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). My main interests there were in the educational writings of Lev Vygotsky and Paolo Freire, and the social theoretic work of Giddens, Bourdieu and Marx. My thesis, "Learning outside the Classroom and the Use of Chat by Learners of English seen through the Lens of Agency" examined how the concept of agency could inform our understanding of both language use and the informal learning process.

 

My other main passion is computer programming. I have written several educational programs in the past, written in the Python programming language, and I currently spend most of my time working on two security-related projects, a password hashing library, written in Elixir and C, and an authentication library, written in Elixir. All of these projects are open source and free to use.

 

When I am not teaching, studying or programming, I love reading good books, my favorites being the great comic novels Ulysses and Don Quixote. I also enjoy listening to music, particularly modern music, and watching arthouse movies.
