I am an ESL teacher and writer.

I have more than 7 years' experience teaching TESOL to students from South America, Asia and Europe. I challenge students to increase their fluency and skill while creating a space where students have fun. Learning should be joyous, not burdensome. Together we diagnose where the problems lie and chart out a plan to make progress. The need to pass an exam or improve skills is yours. I provide materials for how you can get there. We work together to move forward.

Let's see what we can do.
