Learning is Easy and fun (with the right guide)

About the lesson

I have a Ph.D. in English Studies, as well as advanced degrees in English, Philosophy, and Political Science. I am an engaging, passionate, and hard-working teaching who knows how to motivate you by learning. I have high standards, but I will show you how to meet those standards. As the Buddha once said, "When the student is ready, the teacher will be there." I am here to help you to learn.
