Personal Note: 
“My teaching philosophy is an ever-evolving process influenced by time, age, and social impact. It is based on certain fundamental beliefs. I strongly believe that students learn foreign languages most effectively when they enjoy the learning process. It is important to nurture this aspect in the classroom to assure maximum learning potential. I also believe that a foreign language is best learned by immersion and at the earliest age. I also hold to the pedagogical principle that we learn not just for school but also for life.”
