"I love teaching. I love coaching. But nobody is a born teacher. If anything, I was born a learner, and along the way I learned how to teach. I am able to be flexible in my methodology and approach, to deal with unusual students and learning strategies. I recognized that every student has a story. As a teacher, learner, and researcher of language and culture, I discovered that personal interaction with my students and the Active Learning Methodology that engages all of the senses through multimedia is the key for the desired outcome.”
