As a teacher I recognize that all students have a predominant learning style, so I always work with each person as an individual, tailoring our lessons to discover and promote their innate abilities and interests. I am friendly and patient and work well with children of all ages as well as adults. My background in English language training is extensive. I have a B.A. in English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, along with ten years teaching experience in Europe and the Middle East.
