Hello, I’m Mike from the United States. I have been teaching and mentoring youth for nearly 20 years. This includes being involved with youth ministries, teaching preschool, elementary school and as a visiting professor at university in the USA. It’s been said that the ages between 2-5 are the most important learning years in a child’s life. I enjoy the task of teaching and being an encouraging influence during these brief yet significant years. Let’s enjoy learning together!
Let’s have fun with English.
