I've been teaching ESL for the past few years. All ages welcome! For over a year, I taught 4th and 5th graders in Ankara, Turkey. I got my BFA in Acting, and love using my theater background to help students stay interested in lessons and to build their confidence. Our classes will include reading, writing, and speaking, as well as fun activities that I will cater for your needs and experience level! I have lots of experience working with children under 16, but am able to help adults with English for business as well. I teach in-home and online, and our lessons will always be engaging and fun, no matter the level!
I received my BFA in Acting from Boston University's school of theater, but I have been making music since I could walk. As a classically trained singer, violinist and flautist, I've been able to incorporate my musical talents with my career as an actress. I play a range of professional gigs, from churches to rock concerts to pit orchestras. I had the chance to travel around the US, performing in theaters around the country for the Broadway national tour of the tony-award winni
While most of my life has been spent performing, I discovered a love for teaching after college. I have been teaching music and theater for 5 years, and two years ago I began teaching ESL to elementary students in Turkey. I fell in love with teaching English, and feel my training in theater and music helps me use different, exciting teaching techniques in our lessons. I am conversational in both Turkish and Spanish as well!
No matter if we're working on music, acting, or English, I'm incredibly committed to my students and want each lesson to be fun and motivational. I'm a patient, supportive teacher, and know that each student is unique and moves at his/her own pace! Please reach out to me, and I will be happy to answer your questions!

I am a certified ESL teacher. I received my CELTA certification from University of Cambridge. This is considered one of the top two ESL certificates worldwide. My classes are designed with your interests and goals in mind. I teach every student differently because every student learns differently. I teach speaking, reading, writing, listening, pronunciation and academic and professional writing. I have worked students from elementary school through PhD students and adult professionals.
I love the English language and I am always enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge with my students. My most important goals as a teacher are to make sure you achieve the highest possible English level and that you enjoy studying English with me.
My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doreen said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will inspire you
When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry and singing loudly.
