Research overview

Differentiation/ differentiated instruction in the EAL classroom.


I am currently a PhD student in Applied Linguistics at the Department of Linguistics and English Language, Lancaster University. Having graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Oklahoma Panhandle State University and then with my Master of Science in Behavioural Sciences at Cameron University, both American universities, I returned to the EU and obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in pedagogical preparation for teaching English from University of Warsaw. Apart from the aforementioned, I am a member of the British Psychological Society and also hold a Qualified Teacher Status in the UK. For the past few years, I have been delivering both English language and psychology classes in the IB programme. 

My research focuses on the aspect of differentiation in the EAL classroom.
