Richard Mc Sweeney (Risteárd Mac Suibhne) who is a teacher and writer from Ireland has taught English Language and Literature at university level in the Republic of Korea and at middle and high school in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
As a retired teacher of the classroom and the lecture hall he delights in fashioning quality original teaching resource materials hued by his international teaching and study experiences and making them available online (exclusively) to TPT.
His teaching style may be described as being that of the Teacher-Philosopher who brings into the classroom; into his resources and writings a great deal of goodness and an infinite amount of charm.
He received a formal commendation in 1998 from Tufts University in Massachusetts for the high standard of English by students of his who had been admitted there from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
He has a Masters in Chinese Taoist Philosophy from Seoul National University which he gained through the mediums of Korean and Classical Chinese.
He has a BA in Korean Language & Literature from Kyunggi University in Seoul, and a Diploma in Philosophy & Arts from Saint Patrick's College in Maynooth, County Kildare in Ireland.
As is the prerogative and natural daily activity of a teacher, he greatly enjoys self-publishing. To date: April 2020, he has published fifteen edifying books; all of which charmingly present literary and philosophical themes permeated with his teaching and study experiences in faraway lands.
Richard believes that not alone by being true to himself as a PARENT; as a TEACHER and as a life-long STUDENT and through the making available of quality original resource materials, will he in no small way be helping parents play a greater role in their children’s Reading Comprehension – Recall/Retrieval, Prediction & Imagination exercises; will he be helping their teachers get a greater idea of where their students are at emotionally, intellectually and imaginatively when it comes to these vital components of their all-round development and above all will he be helping students he believes to really enjoy the experience of exploring new worlds of thought and putting their own distinctive stamp on them. In this way he fully trusts that we can help and encourage one another to have a greater love for home sweet home: Planet Earth and its beautiful surrounding garden: the Solar System and have a more wondrous fascination and desire to go visit and journey in the beyond fields, valleys and hills of the Great Universe.
Will be making a new resource available in the store from Friday, 31 July 2020.
