Hi there!
I am native to the United States, born in California, and work and travel around the world! I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a Studio Arts degree. I have traveled to different countries and have multi-cultural exposure and experiences.

With the multi-cultural experience, that has added to my character to be calm, understanding, patient and friendly as an instructor that also care for details, growth and meaningful teaching/learning experiences. My experiences have also taught me that I personally need to be a learner at all times which gives me empathy to my students needs and areas of the growth curve.

I believe every person has a unique learning style and my goals is to find what your style is and to help you unlock the keys to learn more efficiently with satisfaction the content that we will be journeying together. I expect my students to do their work within reasonable measures, yet a little out of their comfort zone in order to result in continual growth and acceleration.

I have experience as a:
- Graphic Designer
- Art Director
- Graphic design lecturer
- ESL Tutor
- TESOL Oral English instructor
- Cross Communications Lecturer in the U.S. and in Asian countries.

English Experience:
Young children to adolescents:
I have a combined three years of English tutoring experience along with teaching Conversational English academy classes. Along side with assisting with the students work, incorporating fun and engaging activities and games are an important component to teaching.

University students/young adults:
I recently accomplished two years employment from an international university in Asia as a TEFL concentrating on Oral English and finished out the final semester transitioning to online classes. Focusing on IPA (international Phonetic Alphabet), contextualized/practical and meaningful topics of study is my mode of content lessons. I will work with the student of what is necessary and desired to learn according

Cooking

Growing up in a home with all hands on deck included cooking and baking as early as I can remember. Cooking and Baking has been part of my life as long as I can remember, but with travels in the last decade, the joy, simplicity, complexity and adventure of food has brought greater element of satisfaction, sharing and learning. Cooking can be for anyone: simplified for the beginner with a few spare minutes, to exotic flavors and experimentation for those who want a challenge.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She went out of her way to find answers to my homework assignment. Also she was available beyond the hours I initially thought I needed her to be. She helped me get all the work done.

Sarah, 2 lessons with Esther

Extremely helpful!

Our first lesson went very well. Esther made sure I understood what she was doing, what I was doing, and went back to basics as necessary. I also learned new twists and interesting things about the type of food we were making. Looking forward to next time!

Pam, 3 lessons with Esther

Great communicator!

I learned quite a bit about how to use pathfinder, blob tool, and tips to help as I'm taking college courses. Esther's tutoring was better than any video's online since it was more specific to what I'm doing now.

Very organized and prepared tutor

Esther actually created an outline of what to expect during my lesson and what I should prepare before the lesson! I loved this! She was very organized and did exactly what I asked for! She was very prepared and even had examples she worked on before we had the lesson. I only had one hour to spare and she was able to teach me exactly what I wanted to learn in that hour. Highly recommend!
