About Me

I am an NYC-based, passionate professional teacher with a MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and a BS in Neuroscience with a second major in Spanish language. Throughout my life, I have studied 4 languages in addition to my native language, English. Language and learning are my life's passions, and my understanding of both informs my interactive, brain-based and practice-informed teaching philosophy.
