About Me

**Only accepting motivated intermediate and advanced students**

As a TESOL-certified language enthusiast, I've had the chance to live and teach in northern Spain and tutor around the world. I'm currently fluent in German and have a working knowledge of French, Spanish and Portuguese for those who prefer to learn with somebody who understands their mother tongue. In the past, I've worked at three elementary schools, but I feel comfortable around children and adults. Intermediate students seeking fluency will benefit a lot from my classes. For advanced learners, I'd always be happy to introduce controversial conversations and work with you to enrich your vocabulary!

All students will be asked to prepare for our classes using eslclassprep.com. You will find a variety of topics there that can and will be discussed during our sessions.
