Me as a Teacher
I am patient in my approach and always want to make you feel as comfortable as possible. My lessons are going to be fun and engaging to create a relaxed environment for the student to practice speaking. Grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation are all improved as we go through our conversation. I believe that mistakes are important when learning a language.
“The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake – you can’t learn anything from being perfect” – Adam Osborne
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is centered around you (the student), in a relaxed and learner-friendly environment, on where you would like to improve. My lessons will mainly be conversation based, where we practice through your desired topics and themes. I will be looking to work with you and guide you through any difficulties with the language and resolving them directly. If there is something specific that you would like to work on, then please let me know. (Homework is only provided if requested).
