    I love teaching and I also love languages. It is very exciting for me to help other people to learn something they want or need to know. Teaching languages gives me the opportunity to do that and, at the same time, I get to know new people and new cultures. It’s fascinating!

    I understand all students are not the same. They learn in different ways, enjoy different kinds of activities and have different needs and motivations for learning a new language. This is why I choose to use an eclectic approach which involves different approaches, methodologies and techniques that best suit the linguistic and communicative needs of every particular student, according to all the factors mentioned before. Lessons planning may also vary according to each case.

    I am easygoing, flexible, understanding and very patient, and always focus on making the learning process as pleasant, enjoyable and effective as it could be.
