Having taught, tutored, and coached ESL
for over 12 years now, I have a passion for proper communication - writing
, speaking, listening, reading
, presenting, persuading, and negotiating. In 2006, I earned a Master's degree in Communication/Organizational Leadership from the University of Denver. I also completed a Certification in Teaching English (TESL) from the University of Colorado. I hold a Further Certificate in Teaching Business
English from the University House, San Diego, CA. I've traveled within 4 continents and taught students from over 40 different nations!
My experience includes teaching and coaching at several language
schools, colleges, and universities. Test preparation
is another service I focus on, including IELTS, TOEFL
, TOEIC, ACT English
, and GED
exams. Currently, I also teach Business English, working with corporate clients and their families of all ages and levels of English acquisition. I spent over 25 years in the business world in both New York and Denver, and taught business, leadership, management, marketing
, and communication on college campuses and online for 5 years. In the past few years, I have guest taught at every level of education - from kindergarten
through college. These experiences enable me to work with all ages and levels of learning with ease!
With regard to different learning styles, my coaching sessions include a combination of visual stimulation, use of tactile objects, games, and open dialogue. I believe in mixing things up to keep sessions interesting. Since auditory learners acquire knowledge by hearing themselves speak, I include the opportunity for each individual to share and speak openly in my sessions. I would love to have the opportunity to work with you, take you to the next level, and share my passion for learning!
