About Me

I am an English teacher with 10+ years of experience teaching English and reading in elementary schools, language instutes and now online. I have a BA in Spanish and International Studies and a TESOL certfication from Arizona State University. I from the east coast of the U,S but have been living in central Mexico for almost 10 years. I have a 4-year-old daughter who you will likely meet at some point during our lessons! I love doing yoga (I teach, too!), playing games (Rummikub, volleyball, puzzles, Sudoku- you name it), reading (right now I'm reading "The Happiness Project"), and eating anything yummy (Mexican food is AMAZING!!).

Besides teaching all of the usual English stuff (grammar, conversation, reading skills), I REALLY like to help students with AMERICAN PRONUNCIATION (I am trained in the International Phonetic Alphabet) and JOB INTERVIEWS. So if this fall you are ready for a career change or want improve your accent, I'm your teacher!

***Now offering Spanish to English translations! For the price of a class, I will translate one full page of a document from SPN to ENG (not including medical or legal translations). UPDATE YOUR RESUME, website or other professional content in ENGLISH!
