Degree in Psychology

Dean Cuming (Time off)

I enjoy engaging and motivating students to learn through focused practice of all four skills. I have worked with curricula designed by top publishers in ESL and have also created a great deal of materials to augment structured courses and as stand-alone lessons. I’m a firm believer in reduced Teacher Talk Time as a method of engaging students in their learning. I have also created many project-based activities and employ CLIL whenever possible.

Prior to becoming a teacher (about ten years ago) I worked in the performing arts in Canada for 20 years and have a wide variety of experiences in other sectors as well. I’m currently pursuing a degree in Psychology with a specialization in Organizational behavior. I plan to complete this degree in 2016.
