Instructor

Our IGCSE ESL teacher has a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Education.

The M.Ed. is from Penn State University with a specialization in curriculum design and development. One of the highlights of his graduate school days was doing an internship at NASA Langley Research Center in America designing and implementing a video-based pilot program to show young learners how science, mathematics, and engineering relate to the world around them. The program was so successful that NASA went forward with it, and episodes were broadcast to schools in the US.
