I hold a Bachelor's degree in Linguistics and apply my knowledge of language science to my teaching methodology. My students find me fun, engaging and intellectually stimulating and are often surprised by their progress because learning with me is really fun!
I have been teaching English online and in-person for over 5 years, applying my background with my BA in Linguistics to how I teach. I specialize in phonetics (pronunciation) and syntax (grammar) and have taught beginner-level learner all the way up to doctoral students and assisted them in completing their dissertations. I also have experience working with public-school students on multiple subjects including math, science, history, and social studies.
I believe it is the teacher's duty to find the best way for the student to understand the subject naturally; to be supportive, but most of all knowledgeable while able to maintain an ease of learning for the student. I find my linguistic background to be the most helpful.
