"My teaching philosophy is to ensure lessons are fun and interesting, as students will absorb the content much better if they are enjoying and participating in the lesson. When students enjoy learning English, they continue to practice outside of school without even realizing it. Often this will be achieved by incorporating fun games and other exciting medium into lessons.”
“Something I also believe is essential for a teacher to have is great patience; over the years I have gained this quality, especially towards children who are slower learners or those who do not yet want to learn; and how to adapt to these situations.”
