I very much enjoy learning and seeing growth in others, and consider myself particularly strong in language learning and teaching. I have always been a strong student, and being able to assist others in achieving greater understanding of a subject is something I have always cherished. I am very patient and relaxed with students, and do my very best to aid them in the solving of a problem --- giving them certain help where needed, while still allowing them to solve the problem themselves, and learn. While I very much enjoy languages, and have become rather adept at acquiring them, I am also well-rounded and knowledgeable in many areas, and eager to help.
HobbiesI enjoy reading and exercising, and love to play and listen to music (I played Trumpet and Euphonium, but now mostly play Piano and Guitar). I also enjoy spending time outside and with my friends. Being able to assist others in learning, seeing them become more confident in themselves, seeing them grow, brings me great joy, and I would be very happy to help in any way I can!
