Do you have a personal message for students?
A teacher at my high school invented a word - "stickability". It meant perseverance - keeping at something even when you think you can't see the progress. I have lived my life by this. The British say: "There is more than one way to skin a cat!" Each student learns in his/her own special way. I help you find that way as I get to know your learning style and what you would like to achieve. We take it from there. I have used this successfully with both teaching English and Vocal studies.
