About Me

I am a TEFL-certified instructor with over 6 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) in South Korea and Spain.

I am also a fluent Spanish-speaker who lived in Barcelona for more than four years. I've taught a wide range of levels from elementary to advanced teaching both in language institutes as well as in-company.

I place a strong emphasis on conversation and interacting and allow students to gain confidence speaking by participating in role plays that mimic real-life situations. I also use authentic materials in our lessons.

I think that my experiences living abroad make me sympathetic to the challenges that language learners face learning a foreign language and adapting to a new culture. If you would like an instructor that has firsthand experience with this, then be sure to contact me.
