I am a native English speaker from the United States and teach with a neutral American accent. I have many years of experience teaching ESL to children of all ages.
Ages I Teach:
3-6 years old / 7-12 years old / 13-18 years old /adults
I like my sessions to be fun, dynamic and highly communicative. I see language learning not only as an ability to be mastered but as a means to exchange ideas with each other. It is a life-long process of understanding others and expressing one’s best self and requires a great deal of empathy, patience and a sense of wonder and enthusiasm from both coach and learner.
TESOL Certificate and BA in Spanish
I have been teaching ESL to adults since 2007 and to children since 2008. From 2015-2019 I focused specifically on preschool aged children. Since March 2020 I have been teaching children online.
Languages I Speak:
I speak English natively and Spanish fluently. I am also learning French and German, but quite slowly.
I love to read fiction. I have loved to dance my whole life. I enjoy yoga and meditation, visiting beautiful natural places, music, arts and crafts, cooking and gardening. Spending time with my family is very important to me.
My current location:
The place I’ve called home for the last 15 years is called Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico.
A fun fact about me!
I have spent the night camping on top of a volcano!
