TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in Further Education and the Comprehensive School system in the UK before moving to Hong Kong and King George V school 9 years ago. I am Head of Department for Psychology and we offer the IB Diploma and GCSE courses. I have taught on a wide range of vocational and academic programs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a highly committed, experienced practitioner who gets a real buzz out of teaching. For me, Psychexcite is all about encouraging other people to harness the fun of learning and teaching fascinating subjects like Psychology and critical thinking, to provide participants with an opportunity to refocus, reflect on their skills and interests and to reconnect with their creativity.I offer a varied programme of evening and weekend "Brainstretcher" workshops based on tried and tested Psychological theory and research to teachers and the general public in Hong Kong. For further info please contact me on rayheath@psychexcite.com
