Hi all! I am an enthusiastic, passionate and dedicator educator. I've spent years abroad in France teaching EFL and have had several years of experience teaching both young learners and adults right here in Washington, D.C. My lessons are heavily based on working with each student's individual strengths and background knowledge and pairing those strengths with new material in order to develop new strengths in reading, writing, comprehension and speaking skills.

I have been a teacher for 5 years and believe that all students can succeed at their academic, personal and professional endeavors, as long as they are committed to their success and have a support system who is too. I live in the downtown Silver Spring, MD area with an easy commute to Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.

I am an ideal tutor because I am engaging, flexible and committed to my students. With years of experience, multilingual background, and experience abroad, I bring a diverse skill set that fits every student's language needs.
