I have completed the basic and intermediate pedagogical studies (subject teacher, 60 credits, one full academic year) at the University of Helsinki. Before teaching Finnish, I got a TEFL certificate and taught English in summer schools and online. I’m an English major, but I fell in love with Finnish and chose it as my minor.
