Since 2016, after getting my master, I started teaching English as a second language. I have taught dozen of ESL students. As a former international student, I know the struggle of learning a new language. I can speak and write English as fluently as a native speaker and earned a bachelor, master and doctorate degree in the United States. I am really good with grammar and with my knowledge of French and Spanish, I can compare languages and make grammar much easier to understand for you.

I'm a student at University at Albany working on my Master's degrees for ESL Education Program and Intercultural Communication. I am passionate about teaching, and I absolutely love the idea of cultural exchanges and learning about students! I was also an ESL student when I first came to the States and I understand how hard it can be. I have experiences in teaching a class of more than 25 students as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions of various proficiency levels. Hope to hear from you soon!

I've been teaching English since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop travel abroad, participate in and win different competitions and contests, and build their careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday life and as time goes on you'll be able to make new friends and study and work in it. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I earned my MA in teaching English as a second language and have worked with everyone from nearly fluent children to adult beginners. I am prepared to cater my lessons to suit whatever your needs may be! I am experienced in online and on the ground teaching at the university level and have worked with everyone from children learning phonics and the alphabet to adults learning academic English and research skills for PhDs. I myself have studied a number of languages, and I bring this knowledge to each lesson in order to address specific challenges a student might have. I look forward to starting a language learning journey with you! IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)
