June is a Teacher of English for Academic Purposes at the Centre for Academic English (CfAE) and is a Fellow of the of the Advance HE (formerly the Higher Education Academy).

June has a strong background in project management in education, and has therefore been heavily involved in the CfAE's current curriculum review. Because she has a particular interest in using technology for learning, she has been pivotal in setting up the CfAE's self-study and online provision. Recently, this has included launching the beta version of the CfAE's new self-study personalised pathways. These pathways allow students to identify areas they need to develop so they will become more competent in communicating their science more effectively and clearly. The planned launch for the full release of this exciting new provision is in autumn 2023.

She teaches and develops a range of courses and workshops on academic communication in STEMM disciplines, with a particular focus on academic writing. In addition to teaching on the CfAE doctoral academic writing courses, she also contributes to the development of these courses. She offers one-to-one consultations on research publications and grant applications and also delivers courses and workshops for master's and undergraduate students, which enable them to communicate their science effectively. She has a strong background in discourse analysis and pedagogic theory which she is now applying to teaching STEMM communication.


June has 20 years’ experience of English language teaching which includes designing and teaching a range of academic language, literacy and teacher training programmes in Australia, China, Italy, the USA and the UK.

Prior to joining Imperial in 2017, she designed and taught English for Academic Purposes courses at the University of Sydney and the University of Technology, Sydney.  At the Universities of Wollongong and Sydney, she designed and delivered the English programme for visiting teachers from the Hong Kong Institute of Education. At the University of Sydney, she designed and taught courses for cohorts of both senior visiting academics in the Faculty of Science, and of senior Chinese government officials.

As a teacher trainer, she has designed and delivered courses for both Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education programmes in Sydney, Shanghai and the UK. These courses included curriculum design and development and pedagogic methodologies. Previous careers include software engineering and project management.
