Kadina believes that creativity and fun are essential to the learning process. She makes it a mission to be relatable, charismatic and genuinely interested in the well-being of each student. Kadina’s firm belief is that academic skills are not innate but carefully crafted with encouragement and a tremendous amount of practice. Her mantra with students is “Don’t practice until you get it right, practice until you can’t get it wrong!”.
