I have been teaching Reading Comprehension for more than 20 years. When I got my doctorate I continued to teach in this field because I enjoyed it so much but I was also lucky enough to get to teach English literature courses in Shakespeare and nineteenth century literature. I am fortunate in that I still enjoy most aspects of teaching. I love preparing for new courses or new materials within the same course. I really love going into the classroom and mixing with the students, the only downside with it all is checking exams.
Basically a mixture of frontal and interactive. A noisy classroom can be a productive classroom if everyone is involved, and I do try and get almost everyone involved.

I teach English to non-native speakers. I am a bad language learner and so I understand students who struggle to learn English.Good learners learn, no matter what the circumstances. It is the motivated student who has difficulty who needs the support of a caring teacher. For these type of learners, the students who struggle to master a foreign language, the material and the way it is presented is crucial . Consequently, my own limitations have become a strength and all the material I developed has the weak learner in mind.
