My Values...

FREEDOM has always been a core value of mine. I firmly believe that people should be their authentic selves, free to express their opinions and decide what to study and how to study.

 

This is why I offer 1:1 classes and group programs where the syllabus is negotiated with you and tailored to meet your personal needs and preferences, allowing YOU to have a say about the course topics and format, making your learning more relevant and meaningful.

I believe in promoting AUTONOMY and LIFE-LONG GROWTH. I will help you take ownership of your studies, teaching you how to build learning habits and eventually become a more independent learner.

My final goal as a teacher is to help you find joy in learning and gain the skills and confidence to continue the journey by yourself.

Finally, I seek to establish a GENUINE CONNECTION with my clients. Building rapport, based on mutual trust and respect, is essential to be able to work together.

I care about who you are as a person, and I want you to feel welcome and at ease during our lessons. I believe that a friendly, relaxed environment contributes to increased motivation and a more stimulating learning experience.

It was a fantastic experience to take part in Bistra's Advanced Discussion Course not only to improve my fluency and accuracy but also to get a global perspective on current political and societal matters.

 

Bistra is not only a fantastic teacher and expert in present affairs but also a very kind and erudite person. I'm extremely happy to give her my highest recommendation!"
