Education and Qualifications: BA (Hons) Media and Communication, UCE Birmingham; CELTA, Pass B; PGCEi, Keele University; Bronze, Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award; IB Trained
Teaching Experience: My experience at Renaissance has covered both Primary and Secondary. I am now based permanently in Secondary, teaching English in KS3, IGCSE and IB. I also have extensive experience teaching the grammar rules of English, which I feel helps many aspects of my teaching.
Professional Accomplishments: For the last four years, I have organised the Renaissance Summer Learners programme, we attracted more than 100 students each year, for our six-week course. I am also the international Award co-ordinator, which currently has the largest number of students participating since The Award began at Renaissance. I have been extremely active with our community partners, and have raised over 450.000.000VND over the past four years. Most recently, 129.000.000 VND was raised to buy 47 bikes for students in Quang Nam Province, to make sure they can travel to school each day in the year of 2015-2016.
Description: I firmly believe in a culture of expectation within my classroom and I extend this into my personal life. I believe that not a moment of life should be wasted, so I try to achieve something every day. I am physically active and enjoy riding, running and all types of keeping fit.
