About Me

I am an enthusiastic teacher of English language. As a langauge teacher, I believe that every interested learner is entitled to my attention and care. I also believe that learning is an organic activity- not cognitive burden. Therefore, I take all my abilities to my classroom to make it interesting, immersive and above all, a shared experience in learning. I make sure that every learner gets equal opportunities, involvement and attention. Everyone learns better when everyone learns together.
As a writer, I keep my reader in focus and write value-based fiction so that the reader is not only enternained, but also educated.
