I got into languages at a young age - perhaps without a choice. Growing up with foreign parents from former Yugoslavia set the tone of having to learn English as my second language. For as long as my adolescence can remember, the Serbian language was always my mother tongue so when I started preschool, it was difficult for me to grasp the understanding of a new language. I think this is what sets me apart because I am understanding towards not only the difficulty of both understanding and speaking a new language, but also the importance of it.
As a result, this experience has led me to where I am today. I am currently an online English teacher teaching students from China both the basics and intermediate levels of the English language. It is rewarding knowing that I am constantly encouraging, supporting, motivating and interacting professionally with students of a foreign descent who aim to succeed and further master their education. My experience learning a new language has tremendously influenced my respect, patience and understanding towards others who wish to learn a new language.
I hope I can always help individuals get closer to their goals of learning the English language.
