Eighteen years ago, I started my career teaching high school English, then I became an English professor. Now, I am a business professor. My degrees are in English Lit, Tech Writing, Business/HRM, and English/New Media. I am a nerd who loves to learn; and, I genuinely enjoy teaching. I've been an online professor since 2010. Learning a language requires action; so, I build lessons that call on the student to speak, read, speak, write, and speak some more. I also help students create a system for learning their target language between sessions. I have worked f2f with English learners as diverse as a nurse whose native language is Spanish to a 6 year old from Turkey. My online students have primarily been from China, Saudi Arabia, and Korea and have been beginners in high school to advanced students working in marketing and software development.
