Secondary - EAL Teachers

English as an Additional Language

    Anne Burraston

    Head of English as an Additional Language (EAL)

    Anne Burraston

    I have a BA from the University of Sydney in history, French and Japanese and an MA in Applied Linguistics from the University of New England, Australia. I’ve taught English as a foreign or additional language from tertiary to kindergarten level in Australia, France, Japan, Argentina and China. Working at BSB gives me a great opportunity to pull together all my previous experience with different levels, different ages and different nationalities – all in the one position. The level of challenge and reward that comes from working at BSB would be hard to find in any other single job.

    Secondary EAL Teacher

    Mark Burnham

    I have been an EAL teacher for 15 years both here in China and in the UK. Before coming to China, I taught at Sheffield Hallam University and then came to China to manage an English programme here in the capital. I have extensive experience teaching in both high school and university and have run a number of teacher training sessions.

    I began teaching at BSB in March 2014 and have loved every minute of my time here. The school has given me the opportunity to further my experience of teaching some wonderful students and my qualifications as an examiner for a number of Cambridge University examinations has been well used at the school.

    Secondary EAL Teacher

    Andy Sheridan

    After majoring in English & History in the UK, I became qualified as an English as a Second Language teacher and moved to China in 1997. I worked as a volunteer teacher trainer for three years in Jiangxi Province, followed by three years on the Tibetan Plateau, before settling down in Beijing. In addition to teaching English I worked for the British Council for over 4 years in the English Examinations field, before returning full time to teaching again this year. My son has been a student at the Shunyi campus since he was very small, and he convinced me to join him here! I’m enjoying being part of the dynamic EAL team we have here and am very much looking forward to getting the language levels of our students up so that they can fully function in the learning environment that the Shunyi campus has to offer.
