I graduated from the faculty of Arts, English department. Teaching, whether as a profession or a volunteering act, helps me to achieve some of my life goals. It helps me to improve my knowledge of the English language, for being a teacher means being a constant learner. Teaching helps me in this guidance quest. It is a rewarding feeling when a teacher sees his/her impact on the students. I had tried a desk job, but it was neither suitable nor fulfilling to me. This is why I have shifted to teaching, and I will keep trying to make a successful teacher out of myself. Nadine has been working at Pharos University since February 2018.
