About Me

I am a 34-year-old American. I acquired my TESOL in 2014 and taught in schools around İstanbul, Turkey for 3 years. I am now an English tutor online OR in person if that style meets your needs best. My rates in-person double though, so I think online is better for everyone.

My style is fun and funky. I use a lot of audio clips, songs, chants, games and make it an organic learning process rather than a formal lesson. I like to talk with my students, not at them.
