School Counsellor, Psychologist,

My ultimate goal is to work with children of any age group, and be part of their life development. Theaching English language, the aim of our lessons is for our students to speak, understand and communicate in English with other speakers of English. We can try to encourage this in the classroom by creating an open and engaging atmosphere so our students feel comfortable enough to talk to their classmates.

I want to provoke change in my students’ lives so they are motivated to take their English learning with them outside the classroom and incorporate the language into their daily lives, which will make the learning process feel more natural and comfortable.

If I want my students to continue learning outside the classroom I need to give them the tools to do so. Curiosity is a sure path to learning.

I have got a wide range of experience, in working both with children and adults also.
