About Liza

I am a NYS licensed elementary, early childhood and TESOL educator who has experience working with children from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in elementary education and then received my Master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at New York University. Currently, I am using both of my licenses to teach fourth grade in a general education classroom at P.S. 1 in Chinatown.

I draws on my domestic and international teaching and traveling experiences to create a fun and engaging learning environment for my students as a private tutor. I spent part of my 2014 summer teaching English in Thailand and my 2015 summer teaching English in South Africa, expanding her knowledge of language and literacy development. I have always felt like I have been an ESL teacher my whole life because my father is from Mexico City. I constantly was fixing emails my father had to send to his clients. This is where my interest in working with students whose native language is not English originated. I have been a teacher in a wide range of environments, working with students from diverse cultural, linguistic and economic backgrounds.

For the past two school year, I taught fourth grade in a general education classroom setting in Chinatown. Most of my students are originally from China, so I am constantly using my TESOL license to adapt my teaching to fit the needs of my students. I have worked with twenty-six unique learners, using a variety of materials and strategies to provide targeted support for students. This experience helped build my TESOL skills and planning instruction for students with a wide range of abilities and learning styles. I noticed that most of my students were visual and kinesthic learners so I planned one or more field trips a month for my students to get the hands-on learning they needed.

Prior to teaching in public school, I taught golf to inner city children with multiple exceptionalities. There I organized group activities to develop a greater understanding of the sport and communicated daily with guardians to encourage continued involvement with the sport.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf, tennis, running, reading, and planning my next travel adventures.
