Dialectics, asking and answering questions in a communicative style. Coaching is about you, so you will set your own goals, while I will help you achieve them, sometimes assigning optional tasks. I look forward to meeting you. It doesn't matter where you live, coaching is available. My coaching is also available for non-native speakers and English language learners. I am an American who was born in North Carolina.
I have a Doctoral Degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as a lifetime of experience in education. I have worked with people from all over the world. More than 26 years of experience in teaching in America. I have mentored hundreds of people who were/are in Georgia and across the world. Most of my mentees have flourished by accomplishing various goals such as moving to new countries, passing tests, or getting specific jobs. Everyone should set their own personal goals and change them if they should so decide.
