I have taught English as a Second Language, reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, and English literature. Occasionally my students and I have taken field trips to markets, college campuses, parks, beaches, and arboretums, to learn how to comfortably engage English speakers in conversation.
I have tutored ESL students in how to improve their English comprehension and communication skills since 1998, as a volunteer for South Bay Literacy Council in Torrance, California.
I attended El Camino Community College, West Los Angeles College, San Jose State University, and have taken UCLA extension courses in creative writing. I spent a semester at Los Angeles City College in a poetry writing course.
