I was recently given some wonderful feedback from a former student and he unknowingly paid me the ultimate complement at the same time. This student was being transferred abroad and had to sharpen up his English skills in a hurry. We worked together for several months and thanks to his frequent studying and consistent hard work, he has now successfully transitioned into life abroad.
We have stayed in touch and he recently said that he found my lessons “logical, interesting and fun” and that thanks to my lessons he is enjoying his new life. This was a wonderful compliment and I felt very proud of how I have been able to help him. Unbeknown to him, this is actual the ultimate compliment for me. You see, I did a double-major in university of math and philosophy, both of which are logic-based fields of study. For me, logic is the foundation of all things, in particular application to learning and education. To be told that my lessons were “logical” was such a wonderful thing the hear.
I am one happy teacher today!
