Teaching Interests

Supervision of CELT interns.
Over the last few years, I have supervised and monitored a number of postgraduate and graduate interns from Austria, Germany, France, China and Ireland. Often my work with CELT volunteers, while not exactly teaching,  involves structured tutoring on a one-to-one basis, which I greatly enjoy.
