Hi, My name is Anyarath. I am originally from Thailand. I got a Bachelor degree at Kasetsart University in Thailand and came to UK to further my education.I got an MSc in International Economics from the University of Birmingham in 2001, I then went back to work with the Ministry of Commerce in Thailand before I decided to pursue a PhD level in 2004. Studying PhD has taught me a lot of things about being independent, setting goals, having discipline, keeping calm and sane, andbeing proud of myself.Finally Isuccessfully gota PhD in Economics fromthe University in Nottingham in 2008, those years would also be the most memorable years in my life. I started working at Essex Pathways (previously known as International Academy), University of Essex from October 2008. I am now responsible as a module leaderin Economics.I teach Economics for the International Foundation ProgrammeandYear 0(IFP/Y0) for both October and January Entry. I do enjoy teaching and I always give 100 percent in teaching. My job satisfaction is to see my students progress to the next level of their education. I understand each student has different level of background in Economics; however, I do believe that hard-working and consistency will overcome all problems he/she may have. Apart from teaching, this year I am also taking tworoles: (i) a Senior Tutor who organizes and runs the Personal Tutor system in Essex Pathways department. In particular, I look after under-18s students' general well-beingand provide support/help for students when they need. I also look after students who have been referred from their Personal Tutors. (ii) a Course Director of IFP/Y0 Programme I hope to make contribution in a way that I can enhance students' experiences to be settled and happy while studying at the University of Essex.
