As English has become increasingly important in today’s world, it has provided me with wonderful opportunities to teach students from a wide variety of countries and backgrounds. Students have described me as patient, funny, warm and an excellent listener. I engage students by choosing material and activities suited to their needs, levels and learning styles. In making the lessons as student-centered as possible, it is my goal for students to get the most out of each class. As a passionate language learner myself, I speak Spanish, Dutch and a bit of French. It’s thrilling to put my studies to use and speak with native speakers. My hope is to pass this same excitement on to my students.
