I am a certified teacher with a graduate degree in education and teaching English. I have extensive K-7 classroom and K-adult tutoring experience working with native speakers and students with English as a second language in the US and abroad. Specifically, I have worked in South America and Africa at international schools, and I speak Spanish. One-on-one tutoring or small group learning is available. Each session will be tailored to your needs and interests.

As a teacher, I can help build your confidence and skills in any of the following:
- academic writing
- organizing your ideas and structuring your writing
- editing and revising
- APA and MLA citation
- reading comprehension
- phonemic awareness, decoding, and spelling
- listening skills
- oral language skills

- vocabulary and word choice
-TOEFL preparation

I can also help proofread your written work.

I hope to hear from you!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have state certification in elementary K-6 all subjects. Under this license, I have taught Grades 2, 3 and 5, and Grade 6 English Language Arts and ESL.


I have been teaching ESL in accredited international schools for the past six years. For the past four years, I have been teaching elementary and middle school students at Colegio Los Nogales in Bogota, Colombia. Previous to that, I was an elementary teacher at the Casablanca American School in Casablanca, Morocco. I speak Spanish as well.


As an elementary teacher and as an ESL teacher, teaching phonics and phonemic awareness is part of daily learning in my classrooms.

Public Speaking

In my ESL or ELA classes, I teach oral speaking skills. This includes public speaking. At least once each bimester, students have to share their learning in front of an audience or debate ideas, and skills are taught to make for effective presentations, speeches, and debates.

Special Needs

I have had special needs cases in my own classrooms and, as a long-term substitute teacher, I have worked in self-contained classrooms. In these classes, I have worked with emotionally impaired students, autism and Aspergers, and students with mental retardation.

Study Skills

Teaching study skills is part of what makes an effective teacher. As a teacher, I teach study skills each day in my classroom.
