Hello, my name is Shermane. I am a U.S. native English speaker. I have a background in teaching/education with Western Governors University, which is where I received my degree. Additionally, I am a certified licensed teacher for my local school district. I have been working for my local public school district for the past 9 years and I enjoy teaching with a passion. Teaching and exploring learning with students brings me great joy. I also love the beauty of languages. My philosophy is that learning is a life journey and I would like to be a part of the journey with you. When it comes to learning a language I don't think it is just about perfect grammar, or even enhancing a skill or improving an asset. Language is about bridging the gaps and breaking the barriers in communicating, which should be fun. I differentiate my teaching style to the student needs so that that individual and overall goals can be met. I look forward to being a part of your English language learning journey and helping you reach your goals.
