Other information

I aim to empower students with a true understanding of the English language structure and strategies that they can use independently. My teaching methodology is a balance between the O-G approach and Structured Word Inquiry, touching on all aspects of language, including morphology, phonology, etymology, grammar and syntax. It is individualized to the needs of each student. I have a strong background in special education and have worked with dyslexic students who might have other underlying conditions such as Autism, DCD, ADHD as well as learners of English as a second language.
