Shirui ...ESL teaching assistant for non-English speaking students in my school.

Brendan ...I help my students accomplish their goals by aiding them in discovering what methods best help them become passionate and proactive about learning and then practicing the implementation of those methods with them, so that when they don't need me anymore, they will be equipped with the tools they need to keep learning on their own. I appreciate your consideration! I hope to be able to help you achieve your learning goals.... In a typical first session with a student, I might ask a few questions to gauge their level of learning, after which we'd get right into it, learning and discussing their questions to help them get a feel for how the sessions will normally go. I feel that the best way to break the ice is just to get right into learning!
