About Mireya

Mireya R. Bio

I was born in Havana, Cuba. I was brought to the USA at age five due to Fidel Castro. We lived in Florida, Arizona, California, and Georgia. My father took the family--my mother, my three sisters and myself-- to where the best possible jobs were for him. When I was 16 years old, the family was moved to Atlanta, Georgia. I liked the city right away for it is very beautiful. Two years later, I was entering Emory University, Decatur, Georgia on an academic scholarship. At Emory I studied English, Spanish, and Psychology. I transferred to Georgia Institute of Technology and also studied Math, Chemistry, English plus Psychology at Georgia Tech. That was my father's alma mater, Luckily, my father found a very good job with Brown & Root Engineers in Houston, Texas and he moved the family to Houston.
I transferred to the University of Texas at Austin and life began again.

Austin was a great city to live in during between age 20 and 27. I finished my B.A, in Psychology and Spanish Literature at U.T., Austin with honors. Immediately after graduation, I went to Geneva, Switzerland and then Paris, France. I became an English and Spanish teacher. My first job was at the University of Houston as a visiting Lecturer. More recently, I have worked with Houston Community College for 6.5 years and Cy Fair College. Then I went to graduate school at the University of Phoenix. I finished the MBA in 2005. On January 7, 2006, I started my own Marketing business. I help professionals, such as CPAs and doctors grow in revenue. It is a fun business, if you like people,
you get to meet all kinds! I also love teaching so I found a job at Interactive College of Technology as an E.S.L. Teacher in August, 2014. I have been teaching there since that time on a part-time basis. I have my own classes in Grammar, Reading and Writing, and Speaking. For me, teaching English as a Second Language is more fun than marketing because it is a very creative process and one is helping people from all over the world to grow and learn a language that will help them in their future career. In the future, I would like to travel to China, Vietnam, Japan, Dubai, Latin America and South America, the countries and continents of my students.





I have a love of the English language that began around age ten. At that time, I realized that I liked Grammar and that I was really good at it in school. I have enjoyed writing in English all of my life. My teachers in high school and my professors in college gave me a lot of encouragement after reading my essays. They thought that I ought to be a writer. I will do more writing when I retire. For now, I really enjoy teaching. I enjoy helping students from all of the world learn English so that they will get ahead in life and find work that is satisfying to them. I am qualified to teach ESL/ESOL, TOEFL, Grammar, SAT Writing, and how to write different styles of essays, such as the Narrative, the Compare and Contrast, the Argumentative essay, for any American university.
My students say that I have "charisma". I know a
lot of real-life events and ESL games that I incorporate into my classes.

Email me, text me, or call me after you have signed up and we can get started on your English language learning journey right away!
