Teaching since:

Hi all,
I am Ph.D. and a native Finn who has taught especially social sciences both in Finnish and English, and both in Finnish and the US Universities for 15 years. I live currently in the USA.

Learning Finnish is not as hard as you may currently think and I am looking forward to hear from you. Also, we might be able to integrate your personal interests to learning Finnish language.

Finally, I have a vast knowledge and experience of Finnish education system. So for example, if you are interested in moving or having an exchange year in Finland I would be happy to help you also in this respect.

Best, Ilkka
