- Teaches students:
- Ages 20 to 50
- Teaching since:
My philosophy of teaching foreign languages comes from my own personal experience as a student, tutor, and teacher. I have always been interested in teaching others and in how to teach others optimally – this has guided me to actively consider the methods used by my own teachers as well as to monitor the progress of students I helped or taught. My beliefs regarding teaching foreign languages are constantly evolving and are sure to continue evolving as I have more experience as a classroom instructor and with the ever-evolving technology that is made available in the classroom. However, up to this point in time, my beliefs center around the following general ideas:
(1) the target language should be used as much as possible in the classroom
(2) the teacher should make the importance and use of the target language clear to the students
(3) the teacher should make the class fun and enjoyable for the students
(4) the students should be as involved as possible.
