I teach using an eclectic language learning approach that includes the Communicative Language Teaching approach, Task-based approach, Lexical approach and Total Physical Response approach. As a result, the cognitive, affective and linguistic aspects of language learning are taken into consideration during the learning process.

My classes are based on the learner's needs and the evaluation of the course is adapted to the number of classes and the student's availability.
