Teaching is my passion! I love to see my students develop and grow as the learn.
It brings joy to my life to know that I have participated in helping someone to learn. I have much experience, both online and off, helping and guiding people to learn in the best way possible.
I have taught children, adolescents, and adults in several different subjects, such as Math, Science, History, and especially English. Teaching English is where I have most experience. I have taught English literature, grammar, writing and mostly English as a second language (ESL).

I graduated from Brigham Young University in Humanities and Majored in Portuguese, with a minor in Psychology.
I have extensive experience with languages and helping people to develop and perfect their language skills.

I believe that for a student to learn something, it has to be interesting to them. If it is not interesting, then it is the teacher's job to make it interesting and fun. If a teacher cannot do that, then they are not doing their job. I like to have interactions while tutoring. I try not to just give lectures because most people do not absorb information in that form.

Not only am I passionate about teaching, but I am passionate about my family. I love to spend time with my family. I love to travel and acquire new experiences, which many times helps me to grow and also become a better teacher.
