About Me

***ANNOUNCEMENT: MY SCHEDULE FOR SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2018 IS TENTATIVE AS I HAVE RECENTLY MOVED TO GERMANY FOR AN MBA PROGRAM. PLEASE MESSAGE ME FOR AVAILABLE TIMES, OR ASK ME FOR A LINK TO VIEW MY PERSONAL CALENDAR. THANK YOU :) ***
I am a native English speaker from Texas. In the past, I have taught in Mexico as a full-time teacher. I have been teaching part-time on Verbling since March of 2015, and my focus is on students who need help with Business Communication, Conversation skills and English for Higher Education purposes (University students). My classes consist of building a relationship with you through a conversation based class to evaluate your individual needs and applying extra practice where you need it most.
I also have my own site where I offer DISCOUNTS and share resources with my students as well. if you are interested in learning more, feel free to send me a message. See you in class :)
