Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Usually, it is a lot of translating from one language to the other and systematically going through each sentence so that the student understands the relationship between all the words within the sentence. This is usually done with written sentences I come up with using the specific vocabulary he or she is working with at the time.
