About Me

I am a certified English teacher from Washington D.C., with over three years of experience teaching both online and in person! I love my job and the opportunities I have everyday to make a difference in the lives of my students. I take pride in my work and my students' improvement. The satisfaction of seeing my students pass a difficult university course, or my business clients succeed in job interviews to then relocate around the world, keeps me teaching. I teach Business English, Exam Preparation, Grammar, and Conversation, but I always work with my students to help them achieve their specific goals.

When I'm not teaching, I practice Spanish, train for marathons, write music, practice Yoga, and write essays and journals about the world around me!

I cannot wait to start working together, so come check out a class!
