I am passionate about teaching! I find out what a student's learning style is (which includes audio, visual, kinesthetic, intuitive, experiential, or a combination of these) so that we can be efficient with our time together and so the student learns in a comfortable yet challenging environment. I've taught ESL at all levels, from an elementary bi-lingual (Spanish/English) classroom to college grad students. I specialize in reading, writing and pronunciation. In the area of English writing and critical thinking, I offer 20 years of experience teaching at the college level--including persuasive argument essays, research papers (MLA and APA formatting), and articles. I have written curricula for online classes in the areas of English Composition and narrative storytelling. I have been studying photography for over 15 years, piano for 30 years, and fiddle for 6 years and am proficient at all. I write and speak Spanish and German. I have a MA in Psychology, specializing in the study of archetypes, cross-cultural mythologies, dream work and art. I offer a practical approach combined with elements of creativity to stimulate the left and right sides of the brain to ensure that the student learns while having fun.
