Teaching since:
2013

I am an English teacher and researcher with global education experience. Although I am certified in the sates of Massachusetts and Connecticut (meaning that my background check is complete), I have spent the last few years teaching IB English in Beijing, China; additionally, I am an examiner for the IB in my course, meaning that I have particular insight into what makes for a well-performing assessment. Education is my passion, and it is humbling to have received two teaching awards from the University of Chicago based on nominations from previous students. My approach is fairly straightforward: Where would you like to be? where are you now? and how can we get from here to there? I will challenge you, I will support you, and I will not stop finding new, innovative methods to help you achieve whatever success means to you. **Interested to hear what students in my classes think about me? I'm happy to send you their unedited reviews!
