I am an active person who has a passion for food, training, psychology, and of course languages! I am a native Finnish but my everyday language use consists of almost only Swedish since I live in Sweden.
I am a becoming Swedish teacher for non-native Swedish speakers and I am ready to help you with Swedish grammar, vocabulary, or other things such as grammatical terms that are useful to know in case you would like to learn some other languages. I give as well lessons for Finnish learners at all levels.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher I am engaging and caring. I care about students' needs and I do my best in order to help students to reach their goals. A good teacher gives room for the student to speak and to think, and that is what I aim to do when teaching.
I get exited every time I can successfully learn a student something new and see a development, it is very rewarding to me. My strengths are my own background as language learner since I know how one can learn a language depending on whether it is supposed to be used in social contexts or at school in more academic situations.
My lessons & teaching style
I want to create lessons that are interesting for a student in order to create an engaging atmosphere that helps the student to learn new things and be motivated in the learning process. I appreciate exercises and conversations that are clear and exiting to do.
We can use different exercises that are interesting from your point of view and which are suitable to you. I teach as well Finnish communication skills in different contexts and I can give you a good input to develop your speech skills.

Pihla is always prepared with every lesson, knowing exactly what I should be learning, and going over anything that I am not certain about. It really is a pleasure to have her helping me.
