I am a UK native, and that means that English is my first language, spoken with a British accent.
I was raised in Mexico City and went to school there and also worked there, so I speak read and write Spanish fluently.
I spent most of my young life training to be a dancer, and have three years of teaching ballet part time in Richmond,VA.I am passionate about all forms of dance.
I believe that no matter what the subject is, the student is still in a classroom, and that means they deserve all my attention. In turn I expect 100 % of their attention. I ask my students to switch off cell phones, PDAs and handheld devices, and give me the respect that they want me to give to them.
I want my students to enjoy their time with me, and to ask questions and feel that they are making progress. My teaching style is that of a sandwich, praise, criticize, praise.
Learning should be rewarding, and fun.
In November 2013 I returned to being a student myself in order to complete my Bachelors in Business Administration in Richmond,VA. Now that I'm a student again, I have first hand experience of how it feels, and what learning styles work with some people vs others.
