About Me

Hi, I am Zawer, a student of philosophy, political science, and economics at UBC. I have been learning languages since I was a little child. I have learned English, Russian, French, and German.
I know the frustrations that come with learning a new language, but I also know the potential tricks that might make it easier. I do not impose any specific style on my students, instead, we will talk about your goals and why you want to learn the language and proceed from there. I always try to make sure my methods and materials are as suitable as possible to the student's goals and I try to adapt them depending on their aims.
We will try to converse as soon as possible, after that, the learning process will speed up and the language will flow.
