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.
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.
Rates vary according to distance travelled and level of student.
LANGUAGES: English (Native speaker), Arabic (Native speaker).
PC COMPETENCE: Proficient. (MS Office)
Having taught students aged 6 – 23 for sixteen years and simultaneously successfully navigated middle and higher management and administrative posts at a series of schools, I now aim to improve that record until I reach the highest levels of educational leadership. On a parallel course, I also hope to participate in the formulation of educational policy via the political apparatus.
