EDUCATION
College - Bachelors in Integrated Arts, Major in English

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
I want to share the amazing wonders English has to offer. When it comes to English and Arts, I like to believe they come hand in hand. I see English as a form of art, as it is very versatile in developing the mind and understanding ourselves, as we are also a form of art. We develop with age of who we want to be, creating ourselves throughout the years we live. So, my ultimate goal when I teach, is to help others create their most beautiful selves. After all, John Ruskin stated, “ Fine art is that in which, the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together”.
