I am a lecturer in English language and creative writing. I have taught English language (academic and general English) since 2012. I have successfully completed a teaching methodology course and passed teacher title examination at Salahaddin University-Erbil. I hold BA English language with 86 % average from Salahaddin University-Erbil and MA Creative Writing (with High Merit) from University of Birmingham.
