Having recently returned from living in Turkey for the last three years, I'm excited to begin teaching in the Monterey area.

I discovered my love for teaching about 12 years ago when I traveled to Taiwan to teach English to underprivileged children. At that time I had had one 2 week course on instruction and very little knowledge about teaching children a language, so my time there acted as a quick immersion course in how to work with 500 children a week while reaching learning goals. It was an education for me as well as for them.

After I came back to the U.S., I continued tutoring and instructing while working on my degree in English Literature with a minor in Psychology. I love teaching ESL because of the opportunities it provides me to meet people from different cultures and backgrounds.

I'm CELTA certified and have experience preparing students for the TOEFL-both the ibt and paper versions.

I also taught drama at San Antonio Christian High School and can easily identify with young students. My teaching style focuses on a relaxed student-centered environment.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Dear Student,
I took my first ESL training course in 2001 and moved to Taiwan soon after to begin teaching. While there, I worked with an average of 500 children a week, so I had to learned how to create a fun and entertaining learning environment. I have taught many different ages, nationalities, and proficiency levels over the last 12 years. I have a uncomplicated style of teaching grammar, which will make it easy and encouraging for you to learn. My degree is in English Literature, and I've received my Cambridge certification to teach English (CELTA). I continue to study ESL methodologies to improve my teaching style.
Hope to hear from you soon.
