A teacher must show utmost commitment towards bettering a student. Learning is an ever progressing quest for self-betterment in the story of one’s life. Knowledge is the foundation for every aspect of life and understanding. Education is what one takes away from every learned experience. Everyday one should reflect upon what they learned that day.

I have a TESL Canada certificate, which I received from Victoria International Academy. I received teacher training from Korean Board of Education and English First Jakarta.
