Instructor Biography

Christopher Bauman, Writing like native speakers!

With a background in business, management, sales and marketing Christopher moved into the educational sector in 2007.  Subsequently, he went back to university (the University of Southern Queensland) to get his teaching qualifications in 2014.

Today Christopher Bauman is training , public speaking, teaching, evaluating and consulting in the educational sector in Asia where he identified a desperate need to teach writing skills to students.

He takes the point of view that anyone can learn to write, when they are taught in stages, and believes that if a students cannot write creatively "yet", they will by the end of this course.

The success of his students drives him forward.
