Anglo-Egyptian professor with 16 years teaching experience offering Arabic classes in Gloucester

Methodology

I am a dramatic character and I therefore base all my classroom interactions on interactive and continuous dialogue. I believe that drama is the most powerful teaching tool and that it helps students with memory and assimilation of the most complicated tasks.

Background

I am a teacher. My specialist subjects are English, Arabic, History and Drama. I have sixteen years of international teaching experience. I have taught students in Egypt, the Arab Gulf, and the United States. My students have invariably scored highly on GCSE and IB subjects. As an Anglo-Egyptian, I am a native speaker of both Arabic and English.
