My education includes a Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language and Spanish, and a Bachelor of Arts in Slavic Languages (Russian) and Spanish. I have also studied German, Portuguese and Farsi. I have used all these languages in different capacities in the countries where they are spoken.
My extensive and varied experience includes: teaching ESL in public schools, adult education, community colleges, intensive English programs at universities, military programs domestically and abroad, tutoring Spanish to adults and high school students; long-term substituting in Spanish classes in high schools; and training and curriculum development in various industries.
My strength as a teacher is motivating students to learn by helping them to develop a higher level of confidence in the subject matter which in turn should improve performance. I try to help students solve their own problems, and in doing so, their level of esteem goes up.
