About Me

Hello! Want to learn English? Well, you've come to the right place!

I am a native English speaker from the U.S.A. and a certified TEFL instructor. My love of literature inspired me to earn my Bachelor's degree in English, and my love of teaching inspired me to earn a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate.

I teach English as a Second Language to adults locally in Texas and also have over five years of experience with tutoring and teaching children in English. When it comes to teaching, I am patient, easy-going, and perceptive. I like to use a lot of visuals to keep it interesting, and I prefer to teach grammar through natural conversation. Additionally, in my college courses, I wrote and aced many lengthy research papers and creative writing assignments. So, whether you want to improve your conversation skills, analyze a piece of literature, or write an academic paper, I can help! I want to help you achieve fluency in English, so please tell me your specific learning goals, and I will create structured lesson plans just for you.


In my free time, I love to travel with my husband, read, draw, and dance. I am also learning Spanish and took several years of Spanish classes in high school and college. Therefore, I understand how fun (and sometimes frustrating!) it can be to learn a new language. Join me in my classroom, and I'd love to help you on your language learning adventure!
