I am a TESOL practitioner, and am pursuing EdD TESOL study at the university. My affiliation with the field of TESOL is now more than 15 years old. I am originally from Pakistan. Currently, I am teaching EFL in the English language centre of a higher education institution in the western coastal city of Yanbu AlSinaiyah in Saudi Arabia. Apart from my primary job of teaching EFL, I am also coordinating research and professional development activities for the teaching staff of the centre. I am also a member of the centre council. My main research interests are cognitive styles, language learning motivation, postmethod pedagogy, teachers' professionalism, and continuing professional development.
