Being a teacher for almost nine years I have tried to stick to two principles: first, that it is crucial to cover material but it is more important to teach students skills rather than things, and secondly, that students learn those skills best through interactive teaching demanding their participation and challenging their abilities. I enjoy spending time with my family, learning foreign languages and travelling. Working at ISM is great because there is a rich, diverse community of talented and outstanding students turning my teaching career into a never-ending personal and professional development journey.
