Story. Immersion. Confidence. Community.
"Part of my overall teaching methodology is an emphasis on creating a learner-centered classroom. There’s value in the experiences of each student. Teaching requires patience and repetition; there should be space for students to both succeed and fail with increasing confidence in their English proficiency. So much of success in a language is predicated on feelings of accomplishment and autonomy in mastery. The goal is to have the students excited to come back to class the next day and inspired to practice their newly acquired skills at home."
