Every student can be successful. I have been teaching languages for 20 years. I have a Bachelors degree in teaching foreign languages, a Masters in English as a Second Language (ESL), and I am currently earning a second Masters in teaching languages to speakers of other languages. Teaching is not my job- it is my passion. I would love to have the opportunity to help others with their language learning needs.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Every person learns a language for a reason. Some for general communication when traveling, some for business or school, but if all of them learn it for life, the process will be easier and more enjoyable. We are all wired for learning languages and we can do it with the right help.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
First of all get to know their needs, their accurate level of proficiency and their fears or weaknesses related to the subject. Then have a few activities to start the learning process.
