A languages graduate of Heriot-Watt University, Claire taught in Japan and at Teikyo University of Japan in Durham before moving to northern Poland in 1996 as Director of Studies at a language school. Thus began a varied teaching career, working largely on curriculum development and teacher training. Claire and her family relocated to Oxford and she joined Oxford Brookes in 2000.
