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.

Background

Perfect! She is an excellent communicator and has great enthusiasm for the subject. She took the time to focus on what I did not understand and help me get closer to the next level.
