I am passionate about helping individuals of all ages and all language backgrounds approach their potential. My specialization is in English language skills for both native English speakers and English language learners. All aspects of language skills can be approached in a fun but challenging manner, from reading and writing to speaking and listening. My previous educational experience includes 7 years as an ESL teacher, both in the US and abroad, as well as professional experience as a technical writer and a content editor and ghost writer for various publications (including a teachers' supplemental companion to a Cambridge ESL textbook series). My educational background includes a BA in English with a writing emphasis from the University of Washington, and graduate school at Teachers College-Columbia University in TESOL education.
