I started as a head of the English Department at San Francisco University and created, as well as supervised, all English classes. I was School Coordinator and Director for over 8 years and I have consulted for other private institutions to supervise and create a curriculum based on excellence. For the last five years I established a translation/interpretation and editing department for a major project, building and training a team to give service to private and public owned companies as a support for all deliverables, courses, meetings and teleconferences.

My hard work and high standards have given fruit to excellent reviews. Teaching Language and Literature is my passion. I believe teaching is passing on experience acquired over the years to someone who is eager to learn something new and take on a new voyage. Portraying real life is what teaching is all about.

I believe in applying an eclectic approach in every class. Every student is different and has individual learning styles and needs. This is key to the learning/teaching of any subject. That's why I encourage my pupils to apply "I can do it" as a goal in every project or assignment.
