MY TEACHING STYLE

I focus on teaching BSL grammar using different types of activities. I do use the written form as well as other methods to help students develop their BSL grammar.

Using this method, I have successfully had excellent pass rates for Signature (including full marks on Grammar within the criteria)

I love interactive and fun activities in the classroom that are cognitively suitable for adults!
