I love hanging out with students who want to learn and engage in self-improvement. I have 23 years of experience teaching and tutoring students ranging from elementary to college-age in large, small, and one-on-one settings. I like people, so no matter their age, I seem to relate well. Perhaps most important, my students have fun in my classes! As a teacher I love the joy I get from seeing my students 'get it.' I also love learning from my students.
My specialties are language arts (Pronunciation, Reading, Spelling, English, Writing, Theatre and Spanish), history, geography, and ESL (English as a Second Language). I am TESOL certified, and my educational background consists of four bachelor's degrees: 1. Communication, 2. History, 3. Spanish and 4. International Communication. I have also obtained my master's degree in History.
I have traveled a lot of the world. I've been to Asia, Latin America, and Africa, and I've lived abroad in Spain. This experience and the fact that I've grown up in California, has broadened my cultural appreciation and awareness. I am sensitive and appreciative of cultural and linguistic challenges.
I look forward to a fun and productive relationship with you.
