I am a teacher, teacher trainer and founder of TEFL Equity Advocates and Academy, where I help English teachers tackle 'native speaker' bias by teaching English as a Lingua Franca. I also help 'non-native speaker' teachers overcome their fears and worries by busting the 'native speaker' fallacy, so that they can become more confident and teach English successfully.
I have taught English in Latin America and in Europe, and am currently teaching at KU Leuven, Belgium. I hold a BA in English Philology from the University of Adam Mickiewicz in Poznan, Cambridge CELTA and DELTA, and a PhD in TESOL from the University of York, UK. I have delivered workshops, talks and plenaries at many international conferences and events for English teachers in Europe and North America.
