I believe that in many ways teaching is often done the wrong way around: we talk and the student listens, and we hope something went in. A better approach is to let the student lead, but with the framework set by the tutor. We can then better explore the ideas that the student has, and base our discussion on their input. In short, I look to nurture creativity and the capacity for critical thinking. Facts matter, but they’re not the basis for my teaching, it’s flexibility in thinking and making links, then making judgements.

I was also a tutor, teaching CV Writing and Interviewing Skills to small groups of students.

In addition to this, I have been a course assistant and then director for a renowned summer school programme for a total of 4 years.

I think that it is important to find a common language with students. This can help to gauge their abilities accurately and to build from there. I am dedicated to helping students achieve their full potential and reach their goals. I try to make every lesson exciting and to ensure that students learn something new every time!
