​Being an ardent lover of teaching, I do not take teaching as a job but as a passion. I believe in continuous professional development through enhancement of teaching and research skills and application of innovative teaching techniques in the classroom. My objective is to enhance students' knowledge, skills, and learning capacity by employing innovative teaching techniques and creating joy in pedagogical processes. I focus on inculcating positive values in my students so that they can become more responsible, useful and productive members of the society.

I have more than 15 years’ experience of teaching English language and literature with a variety of educational institutions. I started my career at Petroman Training Institute as lecturer in English in 1997. Later, I taught in various capacities at different institutions of repute including National University of Modern Languages, Pakistan Air Force (Education Branch), Pakistan Education Academy (Dubai), and Foundation University Islamabad.

I joined NUST Business School in Sept. 2013. During all these years of teaching I have taught a wide array of subjects:

Creative Writing, English Language Skills, IELTS, TOEFL, Business Communication, Research Methodology, English for Academic Purposes, Advanced English Grammar, Literary Criticism, Classical Drama, Modern Drama, English Fiction, Romantic and Modern Poetry, Classical Poetry, Modern Essays, Prose, and World Literature in English (comparative literature). I have also developed, improved and revised curricula of BS, MA and MS English.
