Team Members

Welcome to our Eduaction Resources Team!

We might be from different countries, educated in different systems, but we have three things in common:

  1. We are passionate educators.

  2. We see strong language skills and critical thinking skills as important for a sustainable future.

  3. We want to assist young adults and parents in learning skills they need for a more rewarding work and personal life.
