Hi! I am recent graduate of Boston University's Graduate School of Education and I have my master's in Teacher of English as a Second Language and my English license. I have experience working both abroad and nationally. Abroad, I taught English to grades 1 - 6 at a public school in Costa Rica. Nationally, I taught Sheltered English Immersion language arts, social studies, and science to middle school students, provided 1-on-1 tutoring to adults, and designed professional development programs for educators at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

While my teaching philosophy is always growing and changing, as a teacher I consistently strive to create a learning environment that cultivates the strengths of each student, while requiring them to be mindful inquirers. I thoroughly enjoy working with students and ensure that learning is challenging and fun. Working with the student's needs, I believe that every student can learn giving the right educational environment. In order to guarantee success, I design my lessons around the student's needs, backgrounds, and learning interests.

My teaching expertise includes teaching non-native English speakers, writing, reading, phonics, literacy and spelling. I am proficient in Spanish and am skilled at differentiating instruction to match the needs of each learner. I have high expectations for my students; while at the same time incorporate humor and engaging activities in my lessons, so students feel confident and excited about class.

Education is extremely important because it can unlock new ways of seeing, thinking, and interacting with the world. I hope to work with you and open new possibilities for your future!
