Overview

I enjoy teaching English and meeting people from different countries! I am flexible, have a sense of humor and make learning English enjoyable and fun! I choose to teach English using the student centered University of Cambridge (CELTA) teaching method and my classes are interesting and relevant.

Being successful both socially and professionally, depends greatly on how well we can be understood and communicate with others.

My goal as a teacher is for my students to gain confidence to speak and understand English, and to be successful by focusing on specific social and professional terminology .

I have taught many different nationalities including those from:
Thailand
Latin America
China
Korea
Kazakhstan
Egypt
Sudan
Nigeria
Serbia
Russia
... just to name a few.

Let me be your teacher so you can enjoy learning and become a confident English speaker.

Excellent instructor! She is kind and clear. She has lots of patience and makes sure you understand the material/lessons. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, I highly recommend her!
