About Me

Hello! Are you interested in learning English and perfecting your reading, writing, and speaking skills? I am here to make this a reality.

I am an English teacher with a desire to travel the world and experience other cultures. I am originally from the United States but currently live in Hamburg, Germany. I am constantly looking to explore other places and see more of the world. I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor's degree in History and from University College London with a Master's in Museum Studies. I hold a TEFL Certification and have experience teaching children English online.

My teaching ambition is to cater English lessons to each student's individual interests while making class time unconventional. Classes can be focused and tailor-made to meet a student's goals. Learning English is all about having fun with it and making it specific to your needs!

Specialised Areas of Teaching:
I can teach both American and British English as well as their cultures.
