ESL language instructor with over 3 years of experience working with foreign language learners of varying skill levels

Methodology

My teaching approach is based on function and fun! I strive to make lesson time both fun and entertaining with enthusiasm, fun activities, and friendliness. I focus on the individual student's learning style in developing a study program specifically for them and in this way provide them with the best means for success.

Background

I have a degree in business management and am currently applying to physical therapy school. I have worked with over 300 students of all ages to help them to develop English-language skills and, as a result of my tutoring, their conversational and written competence in the English language saw drastic improvement.
