About me

Since graduating from a BA in French and Politics, and an MA in International Relations, I have gained over ten years of experience working in language teaching roles in Turkey, Italy and the UK.  I have worked for three years as a Coordinating Language Teacher at the LSE, providing insessional academic and language support for international students from a group of Departments that come under the LN991 Academic cluster. These Departments include International History, Government and International Relations.  I am currently the Assistant Coordinator of the EAP Department, with responsibility for coordination of our summer pre-sessional programmes. This role ties in with my research I am currently undertaking for the EdD at UCL’s Institute of Education, in which I am specialising in EAP pre-sessional assessment.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.
