My teaching method is based on flipped classroom where a learner is at the center of learning. Course is designed according to a learner's needs and hence, the approach would also vary but strictly adhering to "immersion pedagogy". I equally believe in conducting evaluation from time to time to understand the learner's needs and the effectiveness of the lesson.
With an engineering background, my passion for French language made me achieve not only the highest diploma certification DALF C2 but also a certified trainer (DAEFLE). I have been conducting french language lessons based on CEFR and IB board curriculums since 2010.
