Dear All

Firstly I would like to say that I am a kind of person who is interested in studying Education and Teaching since I have been working as a teacher for five years now so by giving me this chance to improve my Education through studying on line which I consider it an advantage by itself because it’s a self studying and it enhances my skills in understanding and writing abilities, further more it will give me a better job in the future.

Secondly I had taken a course by studying methods of teaching “Distance learning English language Teacher training program” between April and June 2005 with ST Mary’s College/ University of Surrey.(distinction) and I was so glad for this because it broadens my way of thinking towards teaching and learning process

Therefore I see myself as an independent and responsible person on whom you could rely on. so why don’t you give your student a scholarship if available please?

Here is my attached CV

Best regards
