I have always loved English. It was my favourite subject at school and I was an avid reader as a child. I also wrote (and continue to write) regularly: stories, descriptions and observations.. My passion for English led me to study a degree in English Literature. Some years later, I then completed a PGCE in Adult Literacy. I have now been teaching for several years. As a teacher, I am conscientious, patient and always responsive to the needs and interests of each individual student. I always work hard to plan lesson activities that will motivate, inspire and challenge students, encouraging them to want to learn more and to strive to reach the highest grade possible. My primary goal in teaching is always to encourage students to enjoy learning.
