About me

I love working with young people and helping them to embrace their curiosity and passion for learning. The most satisfying times I've had as a teacher have been when my students have had those "Eureka!" moments and they are able to take pride in how far they have come.

I currently live in Toulouse, France, where I am learning too - trying to master the French language!

My subject specialism is IB DP English A, but I also have experience teaching IB DP English B and IB DP Theory of Knowledge, as well as supervising Extended Essays.

Testimonials

Dear Sirs, AMY ARORA I had the privilege of working with Amy Arora from August 2015 – July 31st, 2017. Throughout this period, I was Director of the International School Moshi, Tanzania and Amy was a teacher of English and Drama at our Arusha Campus. I was not Amy's direct line-manager but visited Arusha Campus two days each week and very much enjoyed my work with her. I hired her because she stood out from the crowd and I am sure that this continues to be the case. She is knowledgeable, patient and hard- working, and someone who sets high standards for both herself and her students. She is a dedicated professional who worked tirelessly to maximise the potential of each and every student. She proved to be an excellent teacher and I would hire her again if I were ever in the fortunate position to do so. In her role as Head of Drama, the performances which she led were always energetic, carefully prepared, and full of interest and excitement. I feel that Amy demonstrates many special qualities in terms of being a professional educator. She is warm, caring, intelligent and hard-working but, above all, connects with students with ease and constantly shows that she has their best interests at heart. In my view, it is rare to see a teacher who considers each student as an individual and is prepared to go the ‘extra mile’ for each and every one of them. Nothing ever seemed to be too tough, or demanding for Amy and she always approached everything positively and with a smile on her face! Living and working in Tanzania brings many challenges in its wake, but Amy embraced these enthusiastically and constantly showed the ability to be flexibe and open- minded. As you can see, I hold Amy Arora in high regard, both personally and professionally and am confident that she would prove to be a real asset to any school. I strongly recommend her to you. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] Yours faithfully, Dr. Robert Horton, EdD, M.A., Cert.Ed Education Director Yew Chung Education Foundation Hong Kong
