Sara fully understands that learning a new language can seem extraordinarily difficult, especially as an adult. Therefore, her classes are a safe space where students can feel comfortable if they make a mistake. No one is perfect and learning from mistakes is natural. She is very motivated to help guide you through difficult and overwhelming moments that challenge you as a language student. Because she has lived in many places around the world she recognizes the importance of diversity in learning. In her free time, Sara enjoys traveling and cooking.
