We are a small group of English language teaching professionals with backgrounds in learning materials development, teacher training and development, and we’ve done a lot of English teaching in our time! You can find us about at conferences, either giving workshops or presenting or find our articles on other websites, publications or here on the blog.

When you sign to do a course with ELTCampus, Emma will be your tutor. As the online course developer she has an intimate knowledge of the material and teaching. Contemplating a life change and going into English language teaching, returning to it after a time away or finding yourself in a classroom of children when it wasn’t quite your plan, can be daunting. Emma knows all about that, so don’t hestitate to contact her with any questions, she’s happy to help.
