Dorothy Zemach holds an MA in TESL from the School for International Training in Vermont, USA. Working as an in-house language trainer at Sumitomo Electric Industries in Japan sparked her interest in business English materials, and she went on to write textbooks such as Get Ready for Business (Macmillan), Writing for the Real World (Oxford University Press), and English for Scammers (self-published). After teaching ESL for over 25 years, she now concentrates on writing and editing materials and conducting teacher-training workshops. Her areas of specialty and interest are teaching writing, teaching reading, business English, academic English, testing, and humor. In 2012 she founded a micropress, Wayzgoose Press, that publishes fiction, literary non-fiction, and ELT materials.
