Before joining the Graduate School of Education in 2018, I spent 20 years working as an English teacher in schools in the South West, both in mainstream and alternative provisions.  More recently I have worked as a university visiting tutor for the secondary English PGCE programme, and now work as an Associate Tutor for the MA Education Online.  

My interest in improving aspects of my own teaching practice, as well as a drive to develop my understanding of language and literacy teaching and learning, led me to complete a Doctorate in Education (EdD).   My broader research interests centre on grammar teaching and the relationship between procedural and declarative metalinguistic knowledge.  I am also interested in exploring links between:

  • literacy attainment and social disadvantage
  • the relationship between English/literacy attainment and learner identity (including impact of classroom groupings)
  • gender inequalities and the discourse of underachieving boys.  
  • non-traditional students and writing in HE
