I have also completed a 120 hour TEFL Certification and have worked as Teaching English as Foreign Language Coach for individuals entering the profession. I continue to be interested in improving practices and knowledge about Second Language Acquisition. My greatest strengths are understanding the mechanics/grammar of the English Language and how to use this in practice. Last, as a second language learner, I understand problems a student can encounter or meet while learning a different language.
