I'm a native Texan who has lived in the Houston area for a total of nearly 14 years. I have a well-rounded education, having studied engineering, government, journalism, technical writing, and linguistics. I enjoy using my education to help people discover how smart they are and can be. I am an applied linguist by profession, specializing in English as a Second Language, which involves teaching reading, writing, and grammar to people from all over the world. However, I have successfully tutored English-speaking college students taking university Spanish who otherwise might have failed their classes. Because I am an advanced Spanish speaker, I have been consulted by translators in Peru on English-Spanish technical translations. I am connected to the Spanish TV and theater community in Miami, who consider my Spanish to be advanced. My linguistic skills in general are highly advanced. I have provided proofreading and editing services to graduate students pursuing Master's degrees and Ph.Ds. So, I can cover a wide range of needs in English and Spanish.
I enjoy reading, playing guitar, riding bicycles, and spending time with my dog, a Cocker Spaniel.
