Teaching since:

I am a veteran ESL teacher who has traveled the world extensively, working hard to help others succeed with the English language. I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a BA in Psychology. Also, I obtained a TEFL certificate from TEFL International in Phuket, Thailand, a very renown established program.

As a teacher who is passionate about the English language, I love creating a fun and exciting teaching environment. I find that if the class is dull, the student is not engaged or attentive, resulting in a loss of time and money for the student.

Because I have traveled around the world, I am able to easily assess the student's learning style as I have been exposed to a variety of sorts! Nothing is more rewarding than helping the student fall in love with English, no matter "where in the world" we are located!
