Consulting Services

Consulting for researchers in the field of education and for teachers who engage in research in their praxis


I hold a Ph.D. in English language teaching. I currently work as a teacher trainer, and I mentor/coach teachers/teacher candidates for practitioner inquiry, bottom-up professional development, and action research. I have used MAXQDA in my own research projects including my doctoral work. I have utilized an array of qualitative methods and various analytical lenses. To add, I have supported emerging researchers to conduct rigorous qualitative research projects with MAXQDA through one-to-one mentoring, group consultations, and online/on-site training.
