I always focus on the student's needs and goals, and I conduct the lessons accordingly, in a friendly and humorous atmosphere, with interesting materials and topics; and I show how to practise in a fun way.
90% of my students have a lot of fun and very good results with me. Of course, you have to practise as much as you can. There isn't a single minute wasted in the lesson; if you're tired after it, we've done a good job.
