description of :
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Marketing and a CELTA certificate. My background is in business, but I have been teaching for six years and three of those years have been online. I know how difficult it is to learn a foreign language. I speak Spanish and Mandarin, but I am still a student learning these languages. My classes are in English, however, I can do some translations.

's preferred teaching style:
In my classroom I use active/engaged learning methods to create dynamic lessons. I also try to use problem solving methods where the student has a chance to solve things before an answer is given. In these classes you'll learn grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary and much more. My classes are also designed around the student's needs to help them improve quickly.
