I have been teaching English, ESL, Spanish, Literacy, Writing, Pronunciation/Accent work and Arts-based curriculum for over 25 years. I am an educator, writer, musician, curriculum designer and parent of both learning-different and mainstream-learner children of my own. I have successfully taught and tutored people from ages 4 through 76, and I am successful because I approach teaching creatively, neurologically, intuitively and with a great love of human conenction. I seek to teach from a multi-sensory approach, yet I am committed to meeting the stated as well as underlying needs of my students, which sometimes supercedes my own inclinations. It is my job to teach according to your best personal mode of learning. It is my job to treat my students with respect, authentic interest and kindness... and I enjoy that.

I assess and listen to my students, designing a program of study that suits them as learners and me as an educator. I believe in brain training for maximum retention and assimilation of subjects and learning systems. I like to teach my students how to learn.

I hold a Master's in English with a Writing emphasis and have worked in university writing centers, ESL programs and tutoring projects. I have taught many adults and children across the nation and abroad. I did my undergraduate work in TESOL, completing student teaching, with additional study in Spanish, music and theater. I am multilingual and a published translator between English, Spanish and Portuguese.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals!
