About Me

I originally graduated from Boston University with a Master's Degree in Engineering; however, later on, I found my true calling in teaching English.

For the past six years, I have been working as the Director of Education & Cultural Development for the Colorado Rockies. The position entails the implementation and coordination of the educational needs for all of the Latin players signed within the organization. It was my job to create an education curriculum to address the needs of the players and help them obtain the equivalent of a high school diploma. The primary responsibilities include the recruitment and training of teachers, professors, psychologists and educational facilitators from diverse areas as well as implement and oversee the high school/GED program for the academy. The duties also include mentoring the players, especially those with learning disabilities and help them develop their critical thinking abilities.

I have spent approximately 15 years as an English Instructor and Professor. I have worked at various international institutes as well as local and private universities teaching Advanced Physics and Theoretical Mathematics. My areas of expertise in regards to ESL are vocabulary, accent reduction, reading and listening comprehension as well as in depth knowledge of American customs and culture. Teaching is my passion and is undeniably the most important job I've ever had in my life.

Please feel free to reach out to me. I am always available to teach new students and I'll try to make it worth your while. Take care!
