University of Maryland, College Park (Linguistics)
Pepperdine University (Master's)
I have always had a passion to teach and share my knowledge with others. Communication and languages have been an interest of mine since I was 13 years old taking my first Spanish class. I have since earned a BA in Linguistics and a MAT in TESOL. I tutored 1-on-1 with elementary and middle school students in Madrid, Spain. I taught adults at Santa Ana College School of Continuing Education in California. I currently teach intermediate reading and advanced Listening/Speaking at Columbia College.
My teaching approach is focused on communication (listening and speaking) and authentic learning activities. My students not only improve their fluency but also learn transferable life skills. All lesson plans and activities can be adjusted to my student's personal goals and learning styles. My goal as an educator is to challenge my students and enable them to reach their highest potential while at the same time ensure that they enjoy learning a new language.
I received my Master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Pepperdine University. I graduated at the top of my class with a 4.0 GPA. If you would like to know more about me, my tutoring experience or schedule an session, feel free to contact me with questions. I will do my best to respond within 24 hours.
