About Me

I'm a published journalist, and I enjoy reading, watching movies, and studying languages, such as Spanish, Latin, and ancient Greek. I have a BA in English Literature, an MFA in cinema-television, and a CELTA. I believe in teaching through authentic texts (books, movies, song lyrics, etc.) and conversation.
