Hello!

I am currently working as an ESL teacher, certified by CELTA/ Cambridge University, as well as a Spanish tutor. Prior to getting my ESL certification, I got my BS and Masters in Architecture from the University of Maryland, and the University of Oregon, respectively. Upon graduating, I worked in several design studios working on both architectural and interior projects, and widening my design knowledge through these professional opportunities. While working in the architecture field, I continued to stay in touch with my professors at the University of Oregon, and helped lead workshops for graduate students and participated in juries and panels, reviewing student work. It was then that I realized my excitement for education, and I decided to dedicate my time to just teaching.

My educational experience has been with adults and young adults, and now I am working predominantly with students between the ages of 11-17. While working with adults, I managed classrooms with anywhere from 10-18 students, and worked in smaller groups within the class. I created lesson plans every day and taught vocabulary, grammar, writing and conversational skills. As schools went virtual and online teaching started happening this fall, I began working one-on-one with individual students, tutoring them in ESL and in Spanish. These one-on-one lessons are completely customized for each student, based on their interests and hobbies. In my process, I like to get to know the student before starting to work with them to see what they are most passionate about, and create lessons through that lens in order to make the learning process engaging and exciting. I work with my students to help them find patterns in language that better help them think, process, and catch their own mistakes ahead of time. If there are similarities between English and their native language, I encourage them to utilize those connections to better assist them as well.

What I love most about teaching is learning about my students as I create connectio

Architecture

I studied architecture and design for six years-- four at the University of Maryland where I got my undergraduate degree, and two at the University of Oregon where I got my Master's degree. Upon graduating with my Master's, I received a scholarship that sent me to Europe for a summer to continue my thesis research and create a publication. My thesis project was selected by faculty and students to be showcased at the end of the year. Additionally, I have professional experience working in the design field, both in architecture and interior design.
