About Me

I am a 34-year-old American English Teacher. I acquired my TESOL in 2014 and taught in schools and conducted private and group lessons around İstanbul, Turkey for 4 years. Teaching online on Verbling the last 2 years has been awesome for me and my students. No more traffic, no more taking time away from the lesson to order something at the cafe. Online learning is focused and we're able to use tons of resources at the push of a few buttons.

My style is fun and funky. I use audio clips, songs, chants, games and try to make it an organic learning process rather than a formal lesson. However, if you prefer formal lessons with planning and homework, I'm happy to create a plan for you.
