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 in 2009 when I was fully responsible for IA106 Introduction in Economics module for Year 0 students. During the time that I was teaching in Essex Pathways Department, I was engaging in teaching in several modules, i.e. Methods of Economic Analysis and Economics for Accelerated Route students, 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. The other side of my role is a Year 0 Course Director for all pathways started from 2016, then streamlined to be responsible in Sciences, Business, Economics Pathways from August 2018 to recognise growing student number and staff. The significant part of this role is to deal with students’ and colleagues’ enquiries about the course. Other duties are also involved at operational level dealing with day-to-day challenges, while maintaining the department high standards. I hope to make contributions by enhancing students' experiences to be settled and happy while studying their Year 0 at the University of Essex and be helpful to my colleagues. We are Essex, are you?
