My name is Maria Sidiq, and I am an English language teacher at Nostalgia institute. I have always been passionate about teaching languages ever since my high school years. My Educational degrees include a Bachelor’s Degree in English Language and Literature from University of Halabja, and a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics and TESOL from University of Kurdistan Hewlêr. I like to ensure that the environments I teach in prioritise passion for learning alongside academic achievements. Outside of work, I enjoy reading and spending time with family and friends. My teaching philosophy is inspired by W.B. Yeats’ quote that says, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”. Students need a teacher who kindles the fire of excitement for language learning and engages them in meaningful tasks and activities that ensure learning. I acknowledge that students have preferred learning styles and needs; therefore, I often tailor my teaching instructions and objectives to suit those specific needs.
