In his own words :

For over a decade now I’ve been working with subject teachers around the world on supporting their work in teaching their subject through the medium of English. I’ve recently been reading a  set of textbooks from Austria on Electronics, Physics, Marketing and International Business to help me prepare training for language teachers working alongside teachers of these subjects. My working life can involve a lot of steep learning curves. I also teach English in a Bulgarian state secondary school where my students go on to study part of their curriculum through foreign languages. I write resources for publishers aimed at supporting the teaching and learning of students like these. I’m currently working on a bilingual Bulgarian-English preschool play group in my home town, Plovdiv. (

Response to intervention involves early identification of students’ learning problems and the use of focused lessons, or interventions, to address those problems before they became entrenched. Though primarily linked with special education and early reading, the method is now used at all levels of schooling and in a variety of subject areas. Educators use “tiered intervention” models—of which RTI is one type—to improve school discipline. RTI models are also used to improve instruction for English-language learners, with preschoolers, and as a lever for districtwide improvement. In a time of constrained resources, response-to-intervention materials are one of the few areas where school districts are increasing spending. Ask questions of practitioners and researchers about how RTI works and its effects.
