I have worked as a teacher and/or tutor for the last 10 years. Right after I graduated with my BA in Linguistics I earned a TESOL certificate and became an ESL tutor while living abroad in Brazil. While there I became fluent in Portuguese. When I returned to the States I went to grad school where I earned a Masters degree in English and began teaching college level courses.
I taught a course on Brazilian Literature at a small college in Idaho. After grad school, I started teaching English composition courses at various junior colleges around the Dallas metroplex. Not only do I teach students how to be better writers, I also love writing and have worked as a freelance writer for a few websites. I bring this passion for language and writing to my students.
