Ms Rachel Edmonds

About

With a background in English Language Teaching to adults, I have taught in Brighton, Sydney and London. I moved into English for Academic Purposes and have particular interest in researching and teaching within the study of Applied Linguistics. My specific research areas are the analysis of creative academic genres; corpus analysis and multimodal analysis. At Kingston I lecture on the MA Applied Linguistics for TESOL; I am the academic coordinator of the summer Pre-sessional English courses and I lead the KLS English courses. I also coordinate classes for English support in Kingston School of Art and teach across a range of in-sessional and external courses.
