About

I am a Psychology and Communication Science graduate. I acquired my MSc in TESOL from the University of St. Andrews. I have taught at language centres in Cape Town and in transnational educational contexts at international partnership universities in China. I work as an English language lecturer and coordinator at the Stellenbosch University Language Centre. ​I also offer consultation and facilitate workshops on intercultural competence, intercultural communication, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal communication, both online and in person.

As an educator I work hard to create a learning environment that fosters critical thinking and problem solving. I present information in the most compelling way possible including relevant examples from the field of study or work. I encourage my students to use novel ways to demonstrate their knowledge.​ I strongly feel that the social and emotional development of students is paramount and that good content mastery can only happen when students develop their confidence and feel safe to express their thoughts and ideas. 

In my management role as coordinator, I strive to create a supportive and collaborative environment for my team of teachers. I believe in fostering professional growth and providing continuous learning opportunities to ensure that teachers stay at the forefront of effective language teaching methodologies where they can thrive and create engaging learning experiences for their students.

My research interests include intercultural competence and socio-emotional competence in education and workplace settings, professional development, international education, and transformative pedagogies. 

In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, spending time with my loved ones, and travelling to new and old places.
