Khalid Bari has taught in primary schools in Singapore and was previously a Teaching Fellow at the Centre for Research in Pedagogy & Practice in the National Institute of Education (NIE). After leaving NIE, he held the position of a project officer at the Curriculum Planning and Development Division of the Ministry of Education (MOE). He graduated from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) with a Master’s Degree in Education, specialising in English Literature. He currently conducts creative writing classes.
Khalid is the author of the book, Upper Primary English Creative Writing Made Easy. This book helps students by encouraging them to express their imagination in a way that helps them to present their stories creatively through writing. Some might have the understanding that a good composition has flawless grammar, punctuation and spelling. Those are the basic expectations from any English teacher of a student’s composition, but it misses the mark on what makes for truly great writing that can command the reader’s attention.
