TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an educational consultant, instructional coach, and teacher from Brooklyn, NY. I teach students from all backgrounds! My students speak over 30 different languages combined; the most common languages are Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, French, Fulani, Georgian, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Mandarin, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Tajik, Urdu, and Uzbek. Although I teach high school, many of my students are 19 or 20 years old, so I enjoy creating resources that cater toward an older crowd. I have also taught adult ESL to speakers of Arabic -- this is one of my most memorable experiences.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I started teaching after spending years working as a live sound engineer and a theatrical sound designer. While working in theatre, I composed and arranged music in over a dozen languages. That -- in addition to my own passion for studying languages -- somehow led me to teaching. I'm not quite sure how it happened or when the turning point was, but I remember being overtaken by a desire to become a language teacher.

In my spare time, I love to study languages. I speak Spanish, Sicilian, and Italian, Russian, and I'm trying to learn Uzbek. I have done some research on the Sicilian language, Siculo-Arabic, and present-day Maltese. I enjoy studying sociolinguistics, second language acquisition (heritage language acquisition in particular), and music.
