“I believe that a professional and skilled teacher inspires students in such way that their life is enhanced. I like to apply different communication styles and environmental teaching. As well as learning in the classroom my students will be taught in a botanical garden and will visit a spa and a working laboratory. We will share relevant aroma-documentaries, engage in panel discussion, and share learning from many case studies. All these methods are interesting and designed to enhance the learning experience of the students whilst adhering strictly to the IFPA syllabus and rules.”
