My teaching is geared towards having my students communicate in the target language. Listening to the needs of my students is first and foremost in my mind. I find out what their interests are and base my lessons around those interests. I am enthusiastic and engaging as well as encouraging, especially when it comes to speaking.
I am a CELTA (Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) graduate with an additional 14 years of experience teaching French to high schoolers. I also speak Polish and Russian. I have taught individuals as well as groups.
