About Heather

I have just received my certificate to teach English as a foreign language and I am eager to begin tutoring. I have planned lessons and taught university-level students with a variety of English proficiencies and countries of origin. I designed creative lessons and am able to teach speaking, listening and reading.

In my previous career as a copy editor, I edited news stories with an eye to style, spelling and tone, giving me a particular ability to teach writing and grammar.

I have a master's degree in Journalism from the University of California Berkeley and am a native English speaker.
