English/English Literature Teacher
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English, a Master's Degree in English Education, and I am currently doing an MA student in Creative Writing program at the University of London, Birlbeck College.
Experience: 32 years
I have been teaching English and English Literature for almost 32 years now. I taught Cambridge A Level Literature for nine years with excellent results. I am really result oriented and inspire my students to strive for excellence. I also tutored French students on the island of Guadeloupe for nine years. I enjoy teaching one on one. I love teaching English and teaching literature is my passion. From Chaucer to contemporary writers, I enjoy teaching them all. The absolute joy that I derive from teaching a great work of literature is transmitted to my students in my enthusiasm and energy. I always create a non judgemental atmosphere for my students where they can freely express their ideas about a work. Literature is subjective and no opinion is erroneous if it can be supported with the text in question. As much as my students learn from me, I learn from them also. I believe that Literature should change the life of an individual for the better. When one begins to think critically then one is elevated to a place above the ordinary. I believe that the study of great works of literature can do tht for an individual.
I build good strong relations with my students. As a result, my students trust me and are not afraid to ask for help when it is needed or express their opinions. After many years of teaching, many of my students still stay in touch through the use of social media.
