Currently, I teach ESL to students of all other languages in grades K-8. I have been an ESL teacher and/or volunteer for over a decade. I've taught in the United States as well as in Europe. I have a very hands-on approach to teaching and try to include all types of learning styles in my approach. In addition I strive to develop a personal relationship with each student to best address their learning needs and goals.

I welcome students of all ages and look forward to meeting with you and/or your child.
