I have lived in many different countries: Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Italy and Afghanistan. I love to teach kids and adults English. I like to use games and songs and lots of handouts. I think teaching ESL is an important responsibility. It is a way to help people integrate into American culture and to acquire a crucial life skill; one that improves lives, creates opportunities for individuals and enriches our shared culture.

Teaching for me, is more than simply relating information, it is about creating relationships with students that allow the student to be a 'co-creator of knowledge'. It is about context based content with careful consideration of each student's unique experiences.
I have a bachelor's degree from Evergreen State College, a progressive, non-traditional college in the Pacific Northwest where I studied education and humanities. I have tutored SAT and ESL English in Olympia, WA and I have lived and taught in Thailand.
I look forward to meeting many new students here in the greatest city in the world, NYC!
