I am a graduate of Seattle University. I received my Master of Education in Teaching English. Since graduation, I used to teach English as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) overseas in a high school for three years. I currently work at Edmonds Community College, helping college and ESL students to register for the classes that they should take to get their Associate degree. While I teach English a broad, I am very passionate about the English language, American culture, and Literature. In my teaching experience-helping EFL students to acquire the English language skills, we have fun studying for the Grammar, Reading, and Writing portions of the class. I am patient, resourceful, hard working, and creative. I believe that tutoring helps students see things they weren’t aware of before and helps them be guided towards understanding what they need to do to accomplish proficiency levels. In my free time, I enjoy reading The New Yorker Magazine, which enriches my life about different cultural and intellectual issues, kayaking, running, and attending my amazing Toastmasters club that helps me to improve my public speaking skills.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
We are facilitators of not just language learning, but adult learning. We are capable of shaping identities and transforming lives. Success is not in the grades but in seeing students’ progress and helping them understand their own goals and areas of improvement.
