AbdulRahman William Congreve

My name is AbdulRahman William Congreve. I am currently employed as an English language lecturer at the University of Prince Mugrin. I’ve worked in the ESL/EFL field since 1998. My goal as a teacher is to encourage students to think creatively and to become mature professionals. I understand the value of sincerity, academic honesty and integrity and strive to inculcate this in my students. I’ve been a professional editor and University composition instructor for over 15 years. I believe in the value of the natural environment and that we must all work toward the sustainability of it. I love to read and, during vacation time, to work on dwelling house restoration in the USA.

Academic Degrees

I earned a BS in Science Technology and Society, Environmental Studies from NJIT in Newark, NJ in 1996.

I also earned an MA in English, with specialization in ESL from the University of Toledo, in 2002.
