|Work Role or Professional Tagline||
Academic Director & Content Creator at Clark and Miller
I’m a long-term English teacher with a CELTA and an MA in TESOL and Applied Linguistics from the University of Portsmouth.
I’m the “Clark” in Clark and Miller (www.clarkandmiller.com), a website that focuses on giving learners a deeper understanding of how English works through online courses, books, and a blog that often features giraffes. With my partner I’ve been building the website over the last five years and have also launched a podcast and published a book for language learners called “102 Little Drawings That Will Help You Remember English Rules Forever (Probably).”
I’ve given extensive teacher training, both in-house in Moscow and Istanbul, and as a freelancer in Hamburg, Berlin and Melbourne. My workshops have focused on how to use effective images in the classroom, mnemonic techniques, effective listening strategies and productive error correction.
I’ve also presented at various IATEFL conferences (Bulgaria, Slovenia and Liverpool). My talks have focused on revisiting experimentalism in language teaching and using images effectively in the classroom.
I’m also a keen ESL/ELT writer. As well as the blog, which we publish regularly, I’ve also written articles for Gallery Teachers, EFL Magazine and the British Council teacher’s blog.
In my spare time I can be found giving talks at conferences, cycling around post-Soviet neighbourhoods or performing music in empty bars.
