CPD for Teachers 2017

CPD is crucial because you can never know too much.
In this section I share some of the things that help me become a better teacher.

1. International Language Symposiums - learning from the brightest minds in the industry.

2. Observing my fellow teachers' lessons.

3. Feedback from fellow teachers observing my classes.

4. Feedback from my students.
   With kids, I may write top 20 games that we've been playing during the course and ask them to tick their favorite three.

With adults, I may hand out anonymous surveys and leave the classroom.

My life experience as well as personal interests allow me to offer a variety of ESP (English for Specific Purposes) courses. 

This 2-page flyer, for example, will give you everything you need
to begin an exciting journey to a fascinating world of chess.

which took place in September of 2021)

My law enforcement background has helped me design "English for Police Officers".

 I feel privileged to contribute to a great cause years after taking off the uniform.
