Aziz Emmanuel Gewargis – Lecturer

With almost 30 years of experience in teaching and following the student-centered approach, I have managed to effectively communicate with students coming from different backgrounds and cultures motivating and helping them be active rather than passive learners. My ultimate goal has and still is to help my students express themselves effectively in both writing and speaking.
