Bio

First, I want to say thank you and welcome to my page!

I've worked in the educational field for almost ten years in some capacity, from a geometry and algebra teacher with Americorps to a TOEFL and ESL instructor in Costa Rica and Korea. Nothing makes me happier than to see a student succeed in their endeavors, whether its from a high mark on an essay or to feel confident with delivering a speech.

First, I want to say thank you and welcome to my page!

I've worked in the educational field for almost ten years in some capacity, from a geometry and algebra teacher with Americorps to a TOEFL and ESL instructor in Costa Rica and Korea. Nothing makes me happier than to see a student succeed in their endeavors, whether its from a high mark on an essay or to feel confident with delivering a speech. My love of teaching and tutoring comes from the love of watching a student achieve or master a subject. I am even committed to learning currently as a graduate student at ODU, so I can relate to their struggles in learning.

I have experience tutoring students in ESL, TOEFL test prep, English language and literature, essay writing, and speech and debate. I can also teach reading and writing to small as well.

My cancellation policy is two hours before each session if needed. However, I do also offer makeup sessions for students who are unable to make their appointments. I am willing meet wherever if comfortable for you, if it is in a coffee shop, or the student's home.

I have about five years teaching ESL and TOEFL test prep in two countries. I received my BA in Creative Writing from UC Riverside and am currently pursuing my MFA at Old Dominion University. With my experience and love of writing and public speaking I am confident I can help with bringing the strongest traits of a students writing to the surface while giving suggestions to refine their style.

Once again, thank you for visiting my page! Please contact me if you have any other questions.

Public Speaking

In high school I was a shy and quiet person and I participated in public speaking to get out of my shell. I became quite good at it and joined the Oceanside High School speech and debate club from 2000-2002. I won various awards for forensics in subjects such as Impromptu, Original Oratory and Oratorical Interpretation. I also went to the state championship twice. My experience in the education field can help me coach students in public speaking.
