ExperienceI enjoy helping people learn and become comfortable speaking another language. I love working with individuals who express the same desire and efforts as I do through the language learning journey.
Not many teachers educate their students with the idea that a language can be more than just "a test to pass". I try to show my students that not only can language learning be FUN but it's a tool that you can use for a lifetime.
How I teach:
I like to teach my students to THINK for themselves, so that even when I'm not there they feel confident with the strategies instilled in them to solve the problems they may come across. Patience and Persistence is Key.
