I am an experienced and certified English and ESL teacher. I've been teaching since 1995, and have taught children and adults from diverse backgrounds. I enjoy working one-on-one with individuals who are dedicated to improving themselves through education, and I believe that everyone is capable of success. Education = Empowerment.

We can arrange in-person tutoring sessions, or if you have a computer, webcam, headphones with a microphone and reliable access to the Internet we can arrange Skype tutoring sessions.

In my free time I enjoy reading, bicycling, hiking, and riding my motorcycle (a Harley Davidson Street Glide).
