I have more than five years of international experience in various facets of adult education, earning respect as the go-to person for crafting learning systems that produce remarkable results. I am always seeking opportunities to explore intellectual curiosities, blending cultural influences and innovative ideas. From strategic approach to tactical implementation, I simplify complex problems, overhaul ineffective methods of delivery, and tailor materials to supplement learning on every level. By immersing myself in the culture of the community, the organization, and the individuals, I bring a world view to professional development. I once authored a 16-week experiential curriculum on using critical thinking skills for ESL students in China. If your organization is looking for an extraordinarily dependable, culturally cognizant educator to accelerate professional performance, ask how my skills can further your objectives.
