TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching English at high school level for over 10 years now, with a particular focus on teaching IGCSE and IB at international schools. I always aim to create flawless, no-fuss, high-quality resources to teach literature at high school or tertiary level. I know how difficult it can be to find good resources to teach Shakespeare and poetry, in particular, which is why I place particular focus on this at TpT.
