My teaching style is based around your needs. I love doing hands-on teaching, but if that's not your style i can create lessons that focus on your learning needs. I have taught college to preschool, but my main focus is language. I love words and teaching others on the importance of language.
I am also funny and love doing creative lessons. I will tailor my lessons to your needs and style. I love learning about different cultures and countries, and will tie those ideas into lessons. On the other hand, I can be academic and serious. I did major in Classics (ancient Greece and Rome) and in history, very serious subjects.
I am a lifelong student who has a masters in history and special education. I've taught Latin, German, and English, but my favorite occupation is helping others make the most of themselves. I'll be your greatest cheerleader only wanting to help you fulfill your dreams.
