In my approach, the desires of the student are at the center of my pedagogy. In other words, I start from the desires and projects of each and every one, in order to develop a unique and specific program for each individual. My approach to teaching is intended to be as holistic as possible (from the Greek term holos which means the whole), and which therefore takes into account all aspects of each individual.

  • My main teaching qualities are great versatility and great adaptability.
