“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
I graduated from the MA programme in English and Hungarian Language and Literature at the University of Szeged. I also have a degree in EFL, and a Cambridge CELTA. I spent an academic year at the University of Hull in England, which was a formative experience in my university studies.
After graduation, I started working at the Department of Hungarian Linguistics, University of Szeged, where I pursued doctoral studies in Hungarian linguistics. My major field of study was textual linguistics, with a focus on the interpretation and analysis of intertextual and incomplete literary texts. Apart from being a doctoral student, I also taught classes in Hungarian language and culture to international groups in the interdepartmental programme of Hungarian Studies at the University of Szeged.
I currently work at the Budapest Business School, where I teach Business English, English for Tourism, and Presentation Skills. After a hiatus, I continue my doctoral studies in applied linguistics at the University of Szeged. When I teach, it is my priority to cater to the needs of the students. In the learning process, I always try to focus on each student’s individual characteristics and differences. The two most important skills that I always wish to develop in students are self-reflection and communication.
As teachers, our most important task is to discover and draw out each student’s hidden potential. Being a member of Kőrösi’s IB team, I belong to a community that supports me in adhering to the values I consider substantial in teaching.
In my professional work, I always endeavour to organize students of different backgrounds into functional study groups in which they can thrive as individuals and share common values. For me, curiosity in students is of vital importance, so it must be inspired at all times. In my opinion, the most important aspect of teaching and learning English language and literature is to develop reflection and critical thinking.
