I have been in education for almost two decades, teaching in all kinds of environments and to all ages. I have taught elementary to adult classes. Currently, I teach high school ESL, English, and social studies with a strong focus on literacy.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts (BFA) and a Masters of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction, International Education, TESOL. I have a Virginia Professional Postgraduate Teaching License with endorsements in ESL K-12, English, History and Social Sciences, Visual Arts K-12.
My students range widely in academic background and as a result, I am a versatile educator with experience with all levels and ages.
Some of my interests are languages, music, arts, and traveling! I take lessons with a trumpet tutor. I have a metal shop and work on a '67 Chevy truck. I have a crazy husky named Lola.
I also speak Spanish!
I would love to be you or your child's tutor!
