I am currently attending the University of Maryland focusing on Modern Languages and Linguistics. Previously, I worked in the hospital field for a time before returning to school. I possess enough experience to help you crack the code of languages. The traditional method does not work for everybody. I like to find out what works for each individual student.
I also have a background in teaching. Both of my parents were teachers. I have taught in several Baltimore City and Baltimore County elementary, middle, and high schools. I have taught ELL adult learners as well. Currently I am working for the Baltimore city schools system as a substitute teacher. I have a deep love for languages. In fact I speak four of them—French, Spanish, Wolof, and English—fluently.
I was an ESOL (ELL) student for over three years. I know exactly what would work for a student who wants to transition to another language. Differentiating instruction is my specialty. My goal is to help you hold a solid conversation in another language.
