I have also taught to the students of MSC Linguistics at Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.

As an instructor, I believe in developing life-long learners of language. I employ a pragmatic approach of meeting students at their level and moving them into the zone of proximal development through scaffolding.
Additionally, I’m performing the responsibilities of Course Coordinator of Communication Skills, Report Writer of different events at departmental level, and also advisor of a particular Batch of BSE at this institution. Aside from teaching assignments, I am also required to train students for various writing competitions such as essay and story writing. I have also trained many students for debates and speeches.
