My story of materials creation began in 2014 when teaching English for Academic Purposes in Zhengzhou, China. I couldn't believe the quality of the books being taught and thought "I can do better than this!"
This single thought has taken me on a long, long journey! I wrote an ESL book that was published and then used in multiple schools throughout China which opened up the door to a new chapter in my life. I soon started creating more materials and began to sell them at my TeachersPayTeachers site. This and other teaching experiences led to jobs working at UCLA, Cardiff University, and The University of Manchester.
