Bio

I was born and raised in Bulgaria (Eastern Europe). My interests for teaching developed when I was in high school. However, I discovered a higher interest in this passion of learning other languages, and particularly of English when I was in college. I learned Russian and studied French when I was in middle and high school. As I grew up I discovered a passion for English :) and thus my journey of teaching English as a second language began by learning it and finding a new “door” towards t...

I was born and raised in Bulgaria (Eastern Europe). My interests for teaching developed when I was in high school. However, I discovered a higher interest in this passion of learning other languages, and particularly of English when I was in college. I learned Russian and studied French when I was in middle and high school.

As I grew up I discovered a passion for English :) and thus my journey of teaching English as a second language began by learning it and finding a new “door” towards the world! One of the reasons why students like my teaching is because I know how to connect their struggles in learning through what I went through while learning the language/s.

I taught English as a Foreign Language in my native Bulgaria, in Prague, the Czech Republic, and English as a second language in the United States.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin where I had a wonderful experience and developed professional tools for teaching. Now, I am teaching English as a second language to Saudi Cadets at Lackland Air force Base, San Antonio, TX. I am always looking for more opportunities to help and expand my knowledge with others.

As I mentioned I was born in Bulgaria. Many people think that it is enough to be a native speaker to teach the language, which is not true! It is a great advantage but it is not an overwhelming qualification! Because of my teaching experience as an ESL/EFL teacher, in different countries, my passion for other languages, my interests of other cultures, the strategies I have learned, and most of all the desire to help those in need, I can proudly say that I am qualified to teach Bulgarian or English as a second language.

I have graduated with a degree in education from one of the bests schools in the United States. Being in a reading cohort during my student teaching, helped me to become a wonderful reading teacher, and of course more qualified. I have taught and continue teaching English as a second and foreign language. I have experience teaching in three countries in different educational settings, and with different age groups.

I am willing to meet any challenging situation in order to help those who would love to learn and have the passion to learn other languages! I cannot wait to meet and work with those of you who are ready and are on a path of success- on the path of rediscovering and learning more- not only languages but a new culture, and a new understanding about the world.
