I love teaching and see each session as an opportunity for individuals to grow and take another step towards their goal. I take pains to realise how each student learns and tailor materials for that individual or group in a way which will enable them to grasp what they need to develop. I can adapt to any setting whether its informal, occasional one to one sessions or intensive training in a corporate setting. My philosophy is to take the weight off of the student so that the learning can be a pleasure and hence their learning enhanced.
