I lived for two years in Medellin, Colombia. I developed many result-producing skills and methods for teaching ESL. I maintained a good relationship with all my students, and they all felt that they had benefited greatly from my instruction. I taught both individual tutoring sessions and small classes of 2-15 students. Whatever your tutoring needs are, I can provide them using proven learning methods as well as interesting and motivating learning experiences.
