About Me

I am a professional teacher with a masters degree in education certified to teach in Ontario, Canada. I have 7 years of teaching-tutoring experience. I worked at a private ESL school in Toronto for 2 years and started a guitar club there for students who wanted to sing and play guitar in front of their classmates. I think learning should be challenging but fun and interesting as well in order to keep a student highly motivated to learn. I very much enjoy teaching and working with students from various different cultures. I have traveled extensively. In terms of my teaching style, I like to assess a student initially in terms of their ability and what they want to achieve then to design a plan to help them meet their goals using lesson plans and resources from the internet. I have quite a bit of experience tutoring students on a one-to-one basis as well and believe that this is the best way for them to learn.
