My biggest passion in life is teaching. I have ample experience traveling around the world and teaching people of all ages. I have experience teaching mostly elementary through high school age, even though I have had ample opportunities to work with child care, and even many adults. I have been blessed with the opportunity to have many different subjects that I have been able to teach and share my expertise on. I am passionate about helping others, I enjoy the thought that I can be a positive influence on someone and benefit their outcome.

I have a certificate to teach English as a Second Language (TEFL, TOEFL, and TESL). I have traveled to a few different countries and taught English as a second language. Along with my love of teaching I have become a Scuba diving instructor; I have had some great opportunities to travel around the world and teach. I graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography with a Bachelor in Commercial Film Production/ Photography. Since graduating I have spent about 5 years working in just about all aspects of the film industry while living in Los Angeles, California. I am also an Emergency First Response Instructor (EFR), I regularly teach CPR, First aid, and Secondary Care (Infant, Child, and Adult).

I hope to get the opportunity to work with you and help you succeed!
