I have been teaching ESL to international students since high school. I have taught basic to Intermediate levels. I am stilling working on my degree, but have personal experience teaching ESL. I especially have experience teaching Spanish speakers. I have been multiple times to Colombia, South America, where my husband is from. I also have a part-time job and I am mother. I have studied at Tulsa Community College and Community College of Denver. I made the Dean's List at both Community Colleges. I am planning on transferring to either MSU Denver or CU Denver to complete my degree.

I have musical experience as well. I was pursing , at first, a Music Degree but have recently have decided to change my focus to Linguistics. I still dearly love music but found that I would rather purse Linguistics as a career and have music be my hobby. My principal instrument is voice. I taught voice privately to elementary and middle school girls. I worked on a film score for an Independent foreign film in Colombia called La Montana. I also tutored college students struggling with Music Theory level I-II. I play the flute and the piano as well.

In my spare time I like to take barre classes, hike, enjoy good food, travel, go to concerts and plays, and spend time with my husband, daughter, and puppy.

Really great lesson! I was nervous more than a lot and by the end of the session I felt very comfortable. Will be consulting Rachel again!

Great experience for first lesson with Rachel. Have studied with dozens of teachers. She knows how to sing with a very pleasant sound, and does not overcomplicate matters. Gave a couple tips which immediately improved my sound. Very nice person. Looking forward to many sessions with her.
