A Bit About Me

Teaching is my passion and hobby!
I have been trained to use the Total Physical Response (TPR) system to better convey knowledge to my students. I have experience using TPR and many other advanced, evidence-based instructional methods with people of different backgrounds, ages, and cultures for over 10 years.
My lessons are always lively and filled with enjoyable activities. I encourage my students to ask questions, take risks, and overcome the fear of making mistakes, which are crucial elements of the learning process. Therefore, I aim to make my classes fun and relaxing so my students have a comfortable learning environment.
