Greetings! My name is Ross. I have been a teacher for a decade and have taught many courses to all ages including basic phonics for kindergarteners and economics to university students and adults. I love seeing students achieve their goals and set out to make sure they not only learn a great deal from every lesson but enjoy them as well. I have a master's degree in Economics, a BA in philosophy and TEFL certification. I pride myself on my work ethic and ability to adapt to my student's needs.
