TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe teaching is an art, and that different individuals apply varying strategies and methodology, which suit their personality in order to achieve success in the classroom. So I am constantly searching for new ideas and resources that I can incorporate into my teaching style that will motivate and occasionally even inspire my students.
