Hi! I am a graduate student at Biola University in quest of an MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). I started out as a literacy volunteer at a local library and enjoyed it so much, I decided to pursue teaching as a career. In 2009 I graduated with a BA in History from Thomas Edison State College in New Jersey.
As a homeschooled student, I am innovative and can tailor lesson plans and curriculum to fit each student's specific needs and goals. I try to make learning as fun as possible; using visual aides, art and cartoons to boost memory retention.
My two specialties are music and languages. Since I am currently pursuing Spanish as a second language, I relate very well to the difficulties of acquiring another language as an adult learner. I have a very good grasp of English grammar and phonics but I am also interested in a wide variety of subjects from science to literature to history.
My latest passion is learning to speak Spanish fluently; before that it was Latin, then chemistry, biology and physiology. An avid reader with a broad range of interests, I love to share what I have learned.
