About Me

I am a professional English teacher and native speaker from the United States. I have taught beginning to advanced English to adults from all over the world for more than five years. I can help students with informal/conversational English and academic English as they take the IELTS/TOEFL test and prepare to enter university.

I believe that English should be fun and accessible. I provide students with the tools to continue learning outside of class and to apply what they've learned in the real world. I cater lessons to the students I work with as they problem-solve and explore English.

My hobbies include kayaking, reading, traveling, hiking, and board games. I think that to be an effective educator, you must always be learning.
