TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in Asia since 2006, in both local settings as well as international schools. I am well-versed in IB, AP, and Hong Kong local exam formats. Most of my lessons focus on grammar, critical thinking, and writing (both creative or analytical, depending on level). Since 2011, I started developing my own curricula around Hong Kong, and in 2015 started editing/publishing textbooks for students learning English as a second language. I have also published social science courses for middle school students.
