TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 10 years in secondary schools in Christchurch, New Zealand. For the past six years I have been an Assistant HOD with responsibility for Junior English. I also have experience as an external examination marker.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love what I do and my passion for my subject influences my teaching style. I take care to differentiate my lessons so that each student in my class is working on something they are capable of achieving. I design tasks that engage students and help them develop English skills which will help them for life.
