I'm an experienced student-centered teacher, who has taught college students - Essex County College - in the USA, and also internationally. My students have always rated my performance as exceptionally good (some of these evaluations are posted on the internet at Rate My Professor website). My areas of expertise include teaching sociology (Introduction to Sociology; Social Problems) at the college level. I also teach geography and social studies, and English grammar. My preferred methods of teaching include active discussions, lecturing and exploration. I encourage students to explore to find out why society functions the way it does or how they see it.
Besides my teaching experience, I have also managed education projects aimed at improving the teaching and learning in under-privileged schools. This experience has helped me to put students first in all my interactions with them. I believe in empowering students to take an active role in their education. As a parent myself, I regard parents as important players in educating their children too.
I have also been a mental health counselor for over five years which has also made me more tolerant and caring.
My academic credentials include an M.Ed (Master of Education), a graduate diploma in Communication Studies, a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) in Sociology, and a certificate in Health Education.
