”I think of language teaching not just as an act of imparting knowledge, but as a journey from which both teacher and learner can gain insight into another way of being. Language skills open new avenues of opportunity in our lives, enabling us to do so much more and developing our world-view.
You can see the confidence gained from that feeling of capability, from learning new tools for dealing with life’s many situations. I love teaching and I work hard to ensure that time spent with me is always productive.”
