2010

Hey there! I am a very creative, kind, and vibrant teacher! I love to teach anything I am passionate about, and have experience teaching in a foreign country as well! I have tutored in a variety of subjects, and always have students tell me how much fun they have in their lessons, and sometimes they even end up gaining a new appreciation for the subject I am teaching them! I am a firm believer in teaching with love and patience, and love to get to know my students and form a good relationship with them (especially if it is more than a one time lesson). My prices are flexible, and skill set is pretty wide! So excited to get to work with you!!

She was a great teacher! Could do all the moves with ease and was patient with those who couldn’t. She went slow enough for us to keep up and get a good result. She kept it fun but yet relaxing and enjoyable.

She was very patient with me when she taught me English. I can say that my English skills improved because of her and her abilities to teach.
My pronuntiation is so much better now.
