Methodology

My teaching method is a steady lesson plan for each group, so I can monitor progress for the individual student and the class as a whole. I like to encourage confidence and discipline equally, but most of all I want learning to be fun.

Experience

I am an undergraduate of creative writing (UCA/OCA) and have a TEFL certificate at level four, and teaching diploma at level three, both graded at distinction.
I have experience in training customer in my previous role as a technician, and this mostly had me working in schools and colleges which I enjoyed, hence my career change.
