About Riley

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a degree in Spanish, and minors in history and Latin American studies. I studied in Costa Rica for a semester and thoroughly enjoy just about everything in the Latin American culture. History is another one of my interests as I enjoy reading stories about people from the past.
I am TEFL certified by Cambridge English with a CELTA certification to teach English as a foreign language. It is another passion of mine to see how people enjoy learning the English language and to engage them and motivate them to carry on with their studies. I completed this certification in Beijing, China and then moved on to get a job at a high school in Southern China, Quanzhou City, Fujian Province (directly across the strait from Taiwan). I was in charge of up to 90 students teaching social studies. My students were dual diploma students so they earned an American High School diploma, taking American courses, along with their Chinese diplomas in order for them to have more success in an American university.
When I am working with students and learners, I want to be able to keep their interest within a lesson. I do this through various activities that allows practice of a specific subject. It is also my goal to be able to learn about the interests of the learners and help shape my lessons around what they specifically enjoy. Being in an environment where a student enjoys what they are learning, and can see how they apply their studies to their lives and their future is what gives me most enjoyment.
