About Me

I am a native-speaking English teacher from Texas. I currently live in Ecuador and am learning to speak Spanish fluently. I have a Certificate in Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA, University of Cambridge) and I work with students to improve their skills in General English. I also help with IELTS test preparation.

I am experienced in teaching English to adults with some background in the language (pre-intermediate - advanced). Most recently, my experience teaching has involved working with young adult native Spanish-speakers who were preparing to study abroad at English-speaking universities. My Bachelor's degree is in Geography & Sustainability Studies with a minor in History. I also have a background in environmental education and non-profit work. I use a wide range of teaching materials, including accredited English textbooks.

My teaching style empowers the student to speak as much as possible and not be afraid to make mistakes while using elements of guided-discovery. We will focus on pronunciation, practicing colloquial english, grammatical structures, expanding vocabulary, and improving on all general english skills: reading, speaking, listening, and writing. The lessons will be structured to help with whatever the student’s personal needs and interests are. I strive to create a compassionate learning environment where the student feels comfortable and consistently improves their fluency.
