I am an experienced English tutor to adult and teenage students who are learning English as their next language. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a student learn language through reading, writing and conversation. I really enjoy meeting people from all over the world who want to learn.

I have always chosen careers where I helped others and fed my curiosity about the world around me. Before I was an ESL tutor and teacher's aide, I was an editor and writer in newspaper and television news. I have also been a business trainer and volunteer public speaker. Since childhood, I have pursued music, dancing and choral singing as a means of self-expression.

Communication and information, in all forms, are important in today's world. Literacy should also play a lead role. It often takes a back seat to math, science and technology, but it shouldn't. Our global economy requires workers and leaders who are adaptable and proficient in many diverse areas.

In June 2011, I completed a nine-month certification program at S-TESL, accredited by Seattle University. I completed a TESOL internship at Shoreline Community College in March 2011. I have been volunteering since January 2011 at Shoreline Community College as an ESL teacher's aide and co-teacher. I have been a paid ESL tutor since April 2012. I have experience with all levels of English learning, from beginning (preliterate) to advanced (college prep.)

Public Speaking

I have been a volunteer public speaker since high school, when I became an activist in politics and local government. I have taken public speaking classes in college. As a former broadcast journalist and current teacher-in-training, public speaking is natural to me.


I have taken speech classes in college. I have been a volunteer public speaker for many years. I have recently been certified as an ESL instructor/tutor, which includes training in speech and pronunciation.
