My philosophy to teaching, learning and career is that success in today's world increasingly depends upon your openness, flexibility and agility in learning continuously. We learn from a range of sources including in the workplaces, from the media and our networks and not just from books and courses. So, I would like for my students to learn how to learn beyond the formal courses they are enrolled in or the assessments they need to do. Rather, they need to conduct lifelong learning and reflection on work, education and experiences to grow in their vocation. My role is to facilitate the development of this attitude and orientation of continuous learning in my students.

A keen passion of mine is learning and motivating other people. As a trainer, my main objective is to stimulate learning interests and heighten critical thinking ability among students. By training at APC, engaging with students from over 90 nationalities, I have an exciting chance to enjoy creative freedom and a very high quality of delivering classes. APC maintains its international reputation through high educational standards, which in turn broadens job prospects for our students.
I am very committed to providing a learning environment that is both exciting and rigorous, and use a variety of methods to encourage discussion and interaction on the topics that a course offers. I also recognise that I have expertise and real life experiences to share with the students from which they may benefit.
Passion for training comes from my love for the content that I present and challenges experienced as a trainer. Seeing students succeed in their education and developing the necessary skills they need for their future, and preparing them for that, is what drives me. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and making a difference in student’s lives. It is an honour to be in this role.
