Learning should be personal to the individual or individuals in a group. I believe in connecting myself and the content to the learner based on needs and interests. Over the last 20 years, I have proven that everyone can learn a different language and that new languages are doorways to new experiences and growth.
Over the last 20 years, I have taught thousands of learners. My learners have gone on to explore the world and improve their academic standing. Through my content, I teach the ability to THINK and therefore to learn on the go.
