My teaching methodologies are mainly based on what is needed for a particular skill. I constantly adopt the latest pedagogic methodologies and make good use of educational technologies that are now available to deliver the lessons. I focus on producing activities with clear goals that engage and challenge all students actively in class discussions and motivate them to express themselves as comfortably and efficiently as possible.
