A passionate, patient and enthusiastic teacher, I enjoy working with students of different ages and skill levels across a variety of disciplines and promoting an overall excitement for learning. After graduating from UCLA a year ago I moved to rural Spain, where I was working as an English Language Assistant for the Spanish government in two pre-school/elementary schools for the last eight and a half months. I have tutored in a variety of contexts from tutoring elementary students in reading, writing and basic math to working with college students on academic essay writing, literary analysis, Spanish. I also have tutored high school and middle school students in Spanish and have fairly extensive experience in ESL, having given private lessons ranging from elementary English group lessons with students as young as four to helping adult students prepare for the highest levels of Cambridge English fluency exams. I have a fairly flexible schedule and am happy to answer any questions you might have!
I work as an ESL teacher for an intensive summer English immersion program held on the UCSB campus. I teach beginning communications and high intermediate grammar to students from a variety of different countries around the world, ages ranging from about ten to seventeen.
