Born and raised in the United Kingdom I graduated with a BA in Modern Languages and Literature, French and Spanish, and proceeded to do a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (language teaching). After this I spent six years living and working in Spain where I taught EFL and Spanish. I then wanted to 'do my bit' for the Third World and moved to Haiti where I worked for the United Nations teaching in a Montessori teacher training school. Evacuated in 1991 I came to California where I began teaching ESL for the parents of children in the Head Start program in San Fernando as well as giving private French and Spanish classes.
I eventually took another position at a residential facility where I taught ESL to the staff and Spanish to management. In 2000 I began tutoring students in their homes which is something I really enjoy due to the personal touch and individual treatment you can give to each student. I have taught both adults and children studying varying levels of Spanish, French or ESL. I have my CBEST & am currently working for Kaplan Learning Center teaching TOEFL."
