I am  a postgraduate research student at the school of Education at the University of Exeter. I am currently developing my EDD proposal on Teaching and Learning English as a Foreign Language  and the Influence of Language Policy on Teachers & Learners.

Teaching is the most rewarding aspect of my professional career.  My philosophy of teaching is to provide a classroom environment where students are encouraged to express their own ideas and to develop critical thinking in them. 

 In my personal philosophy of teaching, I believe that it is important to know about the latest teaching trends. It is very empowering for me to understand the theories associated with my field and to be able to reflect on those theories in my teaching approach.

As an EFL teacher and post graduate student, I strongly believe to engage myself in continuous professional development opportunities and at the same time to share my own experiences as an EFL expert with English language community.
