Educational Philosophy: The instructor believes that students are best able to achieve their learning goals in a secure environment. Mutual respect and cooperation are therefore essential at all times in the classroom. By working closely with both the instructor and classmates, students will become more aware and independent language learners. The instructor’s ultimate goal is to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge so that they may take control of and direct their own learning.
