I have taught hundreds of students from at least 17 countries with professions and majors ranging from military to engineering to humanities. My liberal arts background allows me to support students from many different fields. The factor that sets me apart from other teachers is respect for my students' thoughts and feelings.

Since 2010, I have gained university tutoring and classroom experience in America, Spain, and China. I have taught hundreds of students from at least 17 countries with professions and majors ranging from military to engineering to humanities. My liberal arts background allows me to support students from many different fields. The factor that sets me apart from other teachers is respect for my students' thoughts and feelings. In fact, Murray State University's ESL students recently elected me ESL Teacher of the Year (2015-2016).

Although I have diverse interests and skills, I specialize in learning and teaching languages. I speak English (native) and Spanish, and I am beginning to learn Chinese.

Interdisciplinary study in visual culture; Visual sociology/ethnography research experience

Photography

I have been photographing the world since 2006. I began as a stock photographer in support of graphic designers and editors. I have formal training in photojournalism from Murray State University. From 2012-2013, I did commercial photography in the camp and conference industry in Kentucky and Indiana. Since then, I have transitioned to teaching; my photographic work is for pleasure.

IELTS

Because most of my students are interested in taking the IELTS, I took it upon myself to learn about the exam, going above and beyond the required expertise for the MA TESOL curriculum. I am well-versed in the research propagated and used by IELTS, as well as general principles of language assessment. I regularly incorporate IELTS-preparatory materials in my writing, grammar, and conversation courses.
TOEFL,

TOEFL

I first tutored a student for the TOEFL exam in Spain in 2010. After two previous tries, the student was able to achieve the target score after several weeks of tutoring, and today she is a pro golfer with an undergraduate degree from a Texan university. Since then, I have administered more than a dozen institutional TOEFL exams.
