In addition to English, my linguistic repertoire includes intermediate proficiency in German and Russian and basic knowledge of Spanish and Portuguese. This multi-language understanding aids in my teaching, as it gives me insight into the challenges and triumphs that come with learning a new language.
My commitment to ESL instruction is rooted in an ongoing pursuit of knowledge. I have dedicated considerable time to studying the most effective language learning strategies, backed by the latest research. This continuous learning informs my teaching approach, ensuring that my methods are current, effective, and tailored to individual learning styles.
