I've had started teaching since I myself was a student, but that thing made a huge impact on my teaching style. I adopted the best of teaching strategies, which I found in my teachers at that time, which made me a successful tutor.

It opens doors of opportunities to learn more and more as its all-natural!
I usually prefer spiral and natural teaching methodologies, as they are internationally considered to be the best and along with that, I make Fiches Pedagogiques, which helps me to take my lessons in a proper and well-organized manner. I also use FLE (francais langue etrangere) updated methodes. Language is a thing which makes children scare to speak and through my techniques, I make them speak! Because when they speak, they learn.
