TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught dance and drama for the past 30 years, with all age levels. I also have experience teaching English in middle school, high school, community college and university. I have a Master's degree in English Education and a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from University of Aberdeen.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that motivation is the key to learning, and I try to make any subject relevant and interesting to the particular age group. I am very enthusiastic when I present a lesson, and this excitement seems to engage the students.
