First we must start from scratch. I believe that the most important thing when learning a language is to be able to change your mindset. I can help you think differently & see the world from a new perspective!
In the beginning lessons are dedicated to pronunciation and symbols.
However for more intermediate students, I am very flexible and can adapt concepts to fit a variety of interests. I love to teach and learn through immersion too! In my free time I like to translate songs and watch foreign media, so real life examples will be used in addition to textbook examples.
I am all around passionate about linguistics and psychology. Although I have no professional experience teaching languages to others, I do have plenty of experience studying and teaching myself languages & I have taught peers. Also, I was a teacher's assistant for a musical theatre course in university.
I am reliable, curious, and patient.
Studying Italian & Japanese is more than just a hobby for me, so let me help you pick up a new language!
