I have been teaching at the high and senior high school/College levels for the last two decades. I have also taught at the primary level and ESL students. I am passionate about teaching English, Psychology and Sociology to adolescents. Currently I am teaching mainly Psychology to senior secondary students. I enjoy teaching particularly this age group of students who inspire me to learn more in my subject areas. I am also teaching English and SOSE Methods to post graduate students (pre-service teachers) who are enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education.
My teaching style varies depending on the cohorts. However, I mainly use Socratic method of questioning students to enhance their critical thinking skills with a student-oriented approach to teaching and learning.
