As a non-native speaker of Spanish and French, I recognize the immensely positive impact learning foreign languages can have on one's life. However, learning foreign languages is a challenging, long term process that requires dedication. That dedication is not just the responsibility of the student, but of language teachers as well. As a teacher I am committed to making connections with students in a fun, positive way that fosters not just an appreciation for the language but a solid understanding of language fundamentals, such as grammar. I truly teaching and feel there is no obstacle to learning that is insurmountable. Fun is also a critical part of the process, and I always do my very best to make sure my students are having the best time possible while strengthening their language skills.
