Inspiring, motivating, and instructing students on how to actively seek out information to improve their own lives, in my opinion, is an essential aspect of proper education. In my teaching experience, I have found that guiding pupils in goal setting and reflection activities is just as important as theoretical and methodological instruction. Learners needs not only to be shown the way to acquire knowledge through the development of vocabulary, syntax, public speaking and research skills, but should also be encouraged to set their own paths for learning, to note areas for improvement and to navigate their own progress. This promotion of self-efficacy leads to more cases of long-term academic and professional success, as well as a life-long quest for knowledge and understanding of the world.

    “A+++++++++++ It was a blessing to meet a professional copy-editor like Ms. Nichole Schmidt. She was able to spot so many inconsistencies, mistakes, and slips that were not noticed by many other editors I approached on freelancer. What is special about Nichole is that she was generous enough to provide me with valuable tips and advice on improving my academic style, which is more than useful for a young and developing writer like me. This is certainly, where the 'academic' in her comes out, and Nichole was certainly more than an editor. There is a plenty to learn from her about academic English. Thanks to her Masters in Applied Linguistics, Nichole is empowered to scrutinize our writing for more than what ordinary editors can think of. Also, she is approachable, flexible, sharp, and most importantly, her charges are generous by any standards.”
