What do you enjoy most about teaching?

  • The opportunity to present my subject in a creative and engaging way so my students develop a passion for English and the recognition that English is a valuable subject to study.

What is your top tip for new trainees?

  • To be organised and develop a process that allows you to consider the most effective ways of presenting your subject/information in a way that will ensure your students will understand, this will ensure they are continually making progress.

Why should trainees choose your subject?

  • The subject of English is fundamental to an understanding of what it is to be human. It allows us to see through the eyes of others and promotes solidarity between individuals, regardless of gender, race or cultural differences. Through the study of English, we constantly question the construction of reality, which in turn results in the possibility of change.
