Hi, I’m Anyarath. I started my career at Essex Pathways Department since October 2008 as a tutor in Economics. Then I moved up to be a lecturer and module leader in Economics from 2009 when I am fully responsible for IA106 Introduction in Economics module for Year 0 students. During 2008-2014, I was engaging in teaching in several other modules, i.e. Methods of Economic Analysis and Introduction to Economics for Accelerated Route students. I also involved in teaching Quantitative Methods and Finance for International Year One students. My passion always lies upon teaching. I continuously look for the opportunity to improve and adjust my teaching to help students understand and enjoy learning Economics. I give 100 percent and my job satisfaction is to see my students progress to the next level of their education. I am determined to contribute by enhancing students' experiences to be settled, be happy and be proud while studying their Year 0 at the University of Essex. Apart from teaching, I also take a role as Year 0 Course Director in Sciences, Business, Economics Pathways. I provide academic leadership of the course by liaising with the teaching staff, the receiving departments, Departmental Disability Liaison Officer (DDLO), and senior team to ensure effective course delivery. While the significant part of this role is to deal with students’ and colleagues’ enquiries about the course. Others would involved in operational activities dealing with day-to-day challenges, while maintaining the department high standards.
