TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching for about ten years, mostly in the field of ESL, but I've worked with teachers in all different subjects. My professional focus now is on teaching reading, writing, and vocabulary to older ELLs. I love helping kids who are new to the country. It's very satisfying to watch them succeed.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like lessons that are fast-paced, rigorous and most importantly, interesting to the students. I try to include games and fun stuff whenever possible. I never teach the same thing the same way twice, there's always room for improvement or a new idea.
