Considering myself a self-taught and versatile individual, I have been given the chance of
teaching a rather large variety of subjects across many levels, helping me to secure success
in accommodating a diversity of student needs through facilitating all styles of learners.
My practice is heavily based on encouraging learning by using differentiated hands on
activities coupled with various forms of technology. By using class discussions, open-ended
questions and cooperative learning, I am always willing to facilitate a highly interactive and
inquisitive class atmosphere.
With around fifteen years of successful international teaching experience (initial four in Bucharest, five in UK, six in China and one year in Bucharest again) I am confident in my ability and passion to become your key to success.
I have earned a master’s degree in Engineering while being a supply teacher and worked a number of years in the UK Computing Industry but also in schools and colleges.
