My goal as a teacher is to foster a passion for learning and to create an environment that facilitates the acquisition of knowledge. My philosophy is to break down the barriers (real or perceived) that can hold students back and to demonstrate that education is not only accessible, but enjoyable and achievable. . I consider myself to be a good motivator; and I do this by encouraging interaction and engagement in the classroom. I keep up to date with teaching innovations in my main job, and I look consistently look at contextualising a subject to the ‘real world’ so learners can see the benefits of learning in their lives. I am particularly interested in my professional practice in using technology in the classroom as this is an area that can improve student engagement.
I have 8 years of teaching experience from adults to young learners. I teach 1-to-1classes to large groups. I have tutored students through formal qualifications and can also provide more general teaching environments. I hold a PhD in Linguistics and I am currently a University Lecturer specialising in teaching innovations in my subject area.
