Tori

Tori is a creative and enthusiastic person who strives to create a fun environment adapted to teaching children English. She holds a TEFL diploma from Bridge Education Group, is a certified teacher of Jolly Phonics, and has 5 years experience teaching children. Her goal is to have children immersed in a 100% English environment. She believes that one of the best ways for a child to express themselves, no matter the language, is through creative activities. During class time, the children are introduced to English through games and arts & crafts activities. If English is made fun, the children are more likely to begin to develop their language skills as they find doing so enjoyable. Children pick up vocabulary and grammar without even realizing they are doing so!

With love and care, we fully learn to express ourselves.
