Welcome to Verbling!
I am a TESOL certified Adult Education teacher with nearly 20 years experience in teaching English to those who are learning it as a second, third, (or fourth!) language. I speak with an American accent.
I spent two years living overseas and understand what it is like to learn a new language. My husband is from Brazil, so my children and I are currently learning Portuguese. We love languages in our home!
My teaching career has lead me through academic settings (public school/community college), non-profit environments, and private tutoring. I am currently working with adults who have some familiarity with English, but who would like to expand their vocabulary and polish their grammar. Additionally, I have a background in healthcare and enjoy teaching Medical English.
I believe that when students are empowered with confidence and competence, they will find success and progress towards their personal goals.
