I craft my lessons for each student or group of students after analyzing their level, learning styles and needs. I use a mixture of grammar lessons, conversation, games, songs, and other creative activities as I have seen that this approach makes students more comfortable and gives the best results.
I am trilingual in English, French, and Portuguese. I have taught English as a Second Language to children and adults in a variety of settings since 2000. Many of my students have commented that they have been able to make progress with me after unsuccessful attempts with other teachers and schools.
