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 ??? 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!
