I love teaching language. I have worked in the US and Norway and taught ages 4 - 80. In my lessons we start communicating from day 1!
I love getting to know my students and working with them to reach their goals. From the very first lesson, we will start communicating, sharing, and getting to know each other. From there, I will find materials that best suit your needs. For Norwegian, I prefer to use the På Vei series, which is the most popular learning series in Norway. However, I am also happy to use Complete Norwegian or Sett i Gang. In addition to books, we will use websites, songs, articles, and more according to your needs and wishes. For learning English, I can create a course based on general English, Academic English skills, or Professional skills. I have experience teaching all levels. I have written and been approved for grants, and published a textbook, so I how to improve your professional writing.
