Andrew did an English degree at King’s College London, an MA in Linguistics at UCL, and a PhD in Philosophy at Durham University, focusing on the syntax and semantics of natural language sentences (very simple ones!).
He has taught English for Academic Purposes (EAP) since 2009, initially at Durham University, then on pre-sessional courses at UCL, Imperial, and Queen Mary, University of London. Prior to this, he taught English in French universities in Paris and Nancy for three years. He has also been a copy-editor of linguistics titles for Oxford University Press since 2009 and an English examiner for Trinity College London since 2015.
Andrew has a particular interest in effective feedback for EAP as well as techniques to enhance coherence and cohesion in academic writing, about which he has presented at EAP conferences.
