I am a certified English teacher who loves teaching English to students from all different cultures and ages! I have been fortunate to travel to many countries and my teaching experiences have brought me to live in such wonderful countries like Spain and Kenya. I have over 6 years of teaching both young and adult students from across the globe. I recently just moved to Los Angeles last year from Kenya where I taught at a K-12 private international school for 5 years.
Many are learning English for different reasons so I try to adjust my teaching of grammar, listening, speaking, reading and writing according to the needs of the student. I believe in having fun during my lessons and it is my desire to have the student use what they are learning in the "real world".
I also am receiving my Masters in Reading in December (2013). I am very excited about this because I love working with struggling readers who have a difficult time in phonics/phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension, as well as writing. It brings me no greater joy than to see a learner increase their reading skills and end up enjoying reading! I use researched-based method and approaches while teaching Reading and believe that the learner will progress in reading during my lessons.
