A professor of International Baccalaureate Diploma Program English A Literature and English B (ESL) Literature for over nine years, I witness how many bright students enjoy developing their imaginations as well as synthesizing their creative and critical thinking skills through my guided study of literature. They also enjoy their high marks. An IB English A Examiner for the Extended Essay and Paper 1 Commentary, I set high standards and show each person how to meet them through key revision practices.
