    Language is immensely mysterious. It grows, it changes, and it shapes societies. My family has many teachers, linguists, and philologists, the passion for languages came early on. To me, teaching is one of the most meaningful things I can do to inspire change around me. It’s also amazing how instrumental certain languages are in improving an individual’s and a community’s wellbeing. Teaching should definitely become more altruistic. Drifting away from a life-long fixation on grades will have nothing but a positive impact on students. Whenever the course allows it, I get rid of any grading system and focus on each students’ individual issues. I currently run a small content agency, which allows me to work with a host of amazing people from all over the world. Besides that, I’m a part-time digital nomad and meditator.

    I am an accomplished teaching professional with eight years of work experience in English language. My experiences with different levels of education and different institutions, both within an international and indeed national set-up, have led me to acquire the versatility required to flourish in a training environment. Working with local students of varying ages and a structured early years set-up has allowed me to refine my abilities to transmit guidance on an academic capacity. I hold a Bachelor Degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Prishtina, and a Masters Degree in Linguistics. I believe that communication is the key to all working relationships and undeniably academic success. I am thrilled to be part of Beetroot Academy!

    The more I studied Front-End Development myself, the more I liked it. I was amazed by all the cool things you can do with simple code. Even better: I could also implement my graphic design skills to make nice looking websites. It was very fun at first but learning started to feel lonely, so I’m lucky the Front-end course happened around the same time. I am super happy to say that I have finally found my calling—one where I can use my graphic design skills as well!
