Subjects taught
  • Linguistics

    Completed my undergrad in Linguistics, having obtained a first for it. Linguistics is a great subject to learn and teach. The study of speech, the anatomy of the mouth and why we write what we do, was very interesting to me! I believe that there can be a lot to learn from linguistics that pertains to everyday life. Understanding speech, improving our dialect, and helping improve our vocabulary, on the whole, are byproducts of learning this subject!

  • Study Skills

    I have spent the past 6 months tutoring people of various backgrounds, ages, and subjects. I am well suited to teaching study methods as I have found great success from previous lessons with my students. My teaching style seems to bring out the best in my students! The material is all based on application and incorporation into our own understanding. From previous experience, this works best!

  • English

    As mentioned in my bio, I am a certified TEFL (Teacher of English as a Foriegn Language). Not only this, I covered linguistics and during my varsity years.

With a degree based on research it was imperative that I learn to write scientifically, and pull pieces of information from material affectively.
