I always take an approach that is centred around the student and tailor my teaching to student's personal targets. I always teach with the method that suits the student's best and allow them to learn in a relaxed and fun environment.
One thing I have always ensured is that will always be available to help if students have questions outside their lesson time. Just drop me a message!
