I am Ph.D. (Sociology), originally from Finland, but recently immigrated to Georgia, USA. I have taught over 15 years university students both in Finnish and English, and in classroom situations as well as online. My teaching style is based in constructive pedagogy i.e. I emphasize students' active role in learning. Ideally, a teacher helps a student to learn how to learn. I am aware that Finnish language is not the easiest language to learn and so I have patience with all students of Finnish.
