Why do you enjoy working with International Students: 
Not long ago, I was an international student studying in the US, and I had a very positive experience. Like my students, I also had to learn English as a second language. I would like to share this experience by helping my students learn the language. I truly enjoy working with international students and learning more about them and their cultures. Because of my experiences I can relate to my students, and I am very happy that I can help them succeed on their journey to achieve their academic goals.
