Patient motivated tutor with over 30 years of cross-cultural communication, teaching and tutoring experience. I love teaching people of various ages and cultures, especially English language learners, and find fulfillment helping students make progress. I have experience with elementary, junior high, high school, college, and adult students. My expertise is in teaching English to speakers of other languages (Professional TESOL certified). I have taught and tutored in the USA and overseas to children, youth, university students and adults, helping improve students' reading, writing, speaking, and listening. I am also CRLA (College Reading and Learning Association) Level I certified. I worked at the college level, in the Student Success Center, as a writing tutor, helping students improve their compositions.
I received my AA in Liberal Arts with a focus on Anthropology at San Juan College, my Professional TESOL certification at University of California San Diego, and am pursuing my Bachelors in Anthropology with a focus on Culture & Linguistics.
I love to travel and learn about people, their cultures, and their foods, and history so my studies tie into my interests. Reading is a passion of mine - so I have incorporated a strong literature component into my classes. Words have the power to change us and reading opens up the world to the reader. Because reading is so important to me, I work diligently to help students with reading comprehension. Then, since reading and writing are interdependent, I strive to help the student write stronger compositions.
When not teaching, tutoring or traveling, I enjoy reading, gardening, being outdoors hiking, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. I love to try out new ethnicity foods and restaurants.
