Hello! I hold my Bachelor's Degree in both Cross-Cultural Ctudies and Biblical Studies and have 5 years experience teaching in the classroom and over 10 years experience teaching and tutoring privately, including both English as a Second Language, as well as guitar.

As a musician, I play not only guitar, but also mandolin, piano, ukulele, dulcimer, and banjo. I am passionate about the guitar and also incorporate music theory into my lessons.

A vast majority of my experience in teaching ESL comes from teaching overseas. I hold my TESOL certificate and would happy to tutor those learning to speak English.

I am also fluent in American Sign Language and would be able to teach anyone interested. I am very passionate about ASL and the deaf and would love to share that enthusiasm with you!
