As you can see, teaching and learning is a great part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. It is so rewarding to see how pupils improve their English skills and knowledge, and to see their growing enthusiasm in a language which before they might have found "boring". I enjoy solving problems in an interactive way. I am deeply motivated to help learners of any age improve in many aspects of the English language. I enjoy working with children and adults of all ages, and have gained so much knowledge from meeting such interesting people from around the world.
HobbiesHorses ("Natural" horsemanship) --> educating the horse, others and myself through listening to and responding with body language
Education: I am a firm believer in deep learning, and learning through doing & through experience. This means my method in teaching should provoke productive thought; critical and creative understanding. I try to achieve this by asking questions and giving the learner the opportunity to find answers for themselves. I treat each pupil as an individual and try my best to cater to their needs, as this is important for their learning experience and their learning process.
