Greetings! I am new to WyzAnt Tutoring but I bring a very unique approach to helping those wanting to improve their English skills. I have a Master's degree from San Francisco State University, and am TESOL certified. I am truly a "jack of all trades" with diverse skills and experience from business to fitness training to education.

I recently returned to the USA after teaching for 2 years in China at a private college. I taught Oral English, Learning English Through Films and English Free Writing. The most inspiring outcome for me teaching ESL were students who adapted to new situations and challenging themselves into breaking traditional "Chinese" ways of thinking. I incorporated my style of ESL called "action learning", which involves philosophy and movement for language learning.

My goal is for students to not only improve their conversational skills, but more importantly improve their self-confidence in life both mentally and physically.

If you are motivated to improving your English abilities and want to talk with someone in a non-traditional learning sense, then I am the tutor for you. People have busy lives and with my frequent travels, I am glad to utilize Skype for your tutoring needs. It is one of the best ways to communicate wherever you are in the world.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I am TESOL Certified 11/2008 (Oxford Seminars).

Fitness

I am a Certified Fitness Trainer through the International Sports Science Association. I am CPR/AED Certified through the American Heart Association. I am a martial artist and fitness athlete
(Muay Thai Kickboxing).

I teach small-large classes and private lessons. I have been training since age 10.

I focus on philosophy and self motivation through action.

Martial Arts

Muay Thai Kickboxing:

I have been training in martial arts since I was 10 years old. It is something I was born to do and it is a way of self-expression of the human body in physical, mental and spiritual form.

I travel and train around the world yearly, especially in Thailand, the birthplace of Muay Thai to not only improve in skill, but also connect with friends and absorb the Thai culture and customs. It is this experience that brings me great pleasure in teaching martial arts and fitness for better health.
