I am an English lecturer with eight years of work experience at different universities. After my BA degree, I have continued my education with MA grade and I am currently doing my PhD in order to impeove myself and continuous professional development. Throughout my career, I have attended many conferences and seminars to widen my scope and teaching repertoir. I am highly motivated to teach students with various cultural and educational backgrounds at different levels. I am eligible to construct a good rapport with my students and elicit their needs. In the past 8 years, I have taken a part in Syllabus and Testing teams that developed not only my academic skills, but also cooperation skills as well. In my teaching, I attempt to use 21st century teaching skills and apply student-centered pedagogy.
