Methodology

My strength is building a strong connection with the student and conducting ongoing assessment. This helps me tailor lessons to my students specific needs and interests, resulting in effective lessons and quicker progress. I think that when lessons are fun and engaging, they are more memorable for the student.

Background

I have been teaching in classrooms and one-on-one for 10 years. I have a strong background in working with English language learners from around the world. My love of learning ensures my students benefit from my ever-expanding professional knowledge and skills.
