I believe in making learning as fun and engaging as possible for students, and I usually try to make this happen through games, challenges, puzzles and riddles that arouse student curiosity and make them think. I try to use verbal encouragement and rewards as a way to incentivise and motivate reluctant students to get in and have a go. If there's one attitude I'd like to pass on to my students it is this: a desire to create beautiful things.
