I have an extensive background teaching English language in many countries. Primarily I have taught Academic, Business and General English in both classroom and one-on-one environments. I also have experience in TOEFL and IELTS preparation.
My academic record: Bachelor of Arts in Applied Linguistics and Languages (Spanish); Post Graduate Certificate of Education, TESOL major; Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).
Although I have over 16 years' experience, I came late to teaching English. After a career in business and management, I discovered teaching more as a calling, this after personal motivational change and academic and life changes. I feel this gives me focus, enthusiasm and energy for a job I am well-suited and love doing. I am also well-travelled through the English-speaking world so have considerable understanding of English spoken and written styles, idioms and accents etc.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
