I have a passion for education and a diverse background that has helped me develop a knack for making things easier to understand! My experience spans a wide range of topics and ages from kindergarten to adults. I have a bachelor’s degree as well as a master’s degree in education. I taught middle school language arts in the traditional classroom for 7 years before transitioning into corporate training where I worked with a variety of business professionals. I taught seminars on topics such as business writing, public speaking, problem-solving, and communication for 8 years before another area of education caught my eye – English as a second language. After getting TESOL/TEFL certified, I taught English for 2 ½ years in South Korea. Now that I am back in the United States, I continue to teach English as a second language to students who are local and overseas.
As you can see, education is a huge part of my life. I am energized by the “a-ha” moments of my students. I believe, with the right teacher, everyone’s education goals can be accomplished. It just takes the right instruction, method, and approach. There are multiple intelligences, learning styles, and strategies I can help you tap into. I work with each individual student to find the sweet spot that makes it all click. My specialty is all things English – reading, writing, grammar, mechanics, spelling. You name it! If you need help with speaking, writing, or reading, I’m the tutor for you!
