Having taught full classrooms for nearly three years, I’ve found that my true niche in education is through tutoring. I’ve taught advanced ESL courses to medical doctors in Turkey in addition to teaching basic and job-focused ESL courses to refugees in Egypt, Michigan, and New York. I studied Philosophy and International Studies in undergrad while also tutoring ESL, writing, philosophy and IELTS test prep. I have an innate love of learning that I am eager to share with my students. My ESL experience has taught me how to simplify complex concepts making them accessible and providing a strong foundation on which to build greater understanding. I am a calm and caring teacher who enjoys using humor in the classroom – but who is also capable of being firm when necessary. I love working with individual students to identify their strengths, areas that need of improvement, and to create an action-plan for their success. In my free time I enjoy yoga, biking, reading, and going to comedy shows.
