Teaching English in a student-centred way is a passion for Downes, who has worked in many settings across the sector. She taught academic writing, general English and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) in a high school, developing CLIL Art History and Public Speaking syllabi from scratch. She has worked with clients of all backgrounds and ages, written and coordinated an Elementary short-course for visiting students from Brazil and spent 18 months training ESOL teachers in Prague, which required extensive, up-to-date knowledge of grammar forms and teaching methodology.

In addition to teaching and teacher-training, she has worked for private clients whose second language is English, proofreading and editing academic publications and upper-level theses from undergraduate through doctoral.
