What did you enjoy most about studying here?

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

Its academic excellence in English and education; the tranquil life in the “country” (I was living in Garden Hill House, Higher Hoopern Lane).

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

1. Teaching methodologies; 2. Research methods, be it qualitative or quantitative, to address problems I confront in my later career.

What advice would you give to a current student who wishes to pursue your career?

The delivery of a lesson is as equally important as the contents (like grammatical points, vocabulary, etc) of it. So it’s essential that you know how to “perform” and deliver an engaging one.

What are your plans for the future?

A doctorate.
