“We will take the journey to learning excellent English skills!”

I am a passionate instructor who loves and enjoys teaching. I genuinely care about each and every student and put a lot of effort into tutoring them one on one in my classroom. I believe in every student’s strengths, and I guide and motivate them to reach their full potential. I have been teaching for the past three years, and I find my experience to be very rewarding.

“With languages, you are at home anywhere.” – Edmund De Waal

As an English teacher I measure my success with that of the learners’ success. I believe that every learner has their own unique learning style and their own goals in language learning. Trying to incorporate both of these in the classroom is an exciting challenge and something that I am very passionate about.

I have been teaching ESL for almost three years and it has brought me great joy to help my students learn English. I am a caring, passionate, and cheerful instructor who truly believes that everyone can learn. I like to combine TPR methods (body movement, gestures, and expressions) to help students understand the message a little better.
