“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires”. * These are qualities that I take as gold standard and aspire to in my day to day work. In my opinion, a good teacher should not only be an expert in their subject area, but should present material clearly and logically with enthusiasm. Curiosity should be generated in the students around the lecture content, using excellent presentation and communicational skills.
I believe that good classroom management is essential to motivate students, to create a safe and comfortable environment student to learn. Mutual respect is essential, not only from student to teacher but also the other way around.
With over 14 years teaching experience, in a broad secondary and higher education setting, I have taught a full range of age and ability groups from HND to year 7 students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and English as an Additional Language (EAL).
