"Creating new materials and lesson plans is an area I'm passionate about and I specialise in course design for
teens with a focus on communicative competency. I believe that the key to optimal learning is to make lessons as interactive and relevant to the students' own lives as possible.
Travelling is one of my passions and I love exploring different places and ways of life. I have spent time in South America, India and Cambodia and I always enjoy getting to know students from all over the world whilst teaching."
