As there are many areas of English and different teaching methods, for me, there is no one-size-fits-all solution because every child is different.

I am focused on writing skills, listening and repeating, speaking and pronouncing.

I specialize in one on one and small group work. I enjoy working with students of all ages and I think learning should be fun and stress-free which I strive to do with every lesson.
