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.
