About Me



Hola! Ni hao! Hello community!

I am a TEFL/TESOL certified teacher, writer and traveler currently back in the USA (Minnesota currently), after living in Bogota, Colombia for almost 2 years. También hablo Español y listo para ayudar en cualquiera manera necesitas, me avisas.

I currently teach:
>Physical classes for multi-cultural beginner/intermediate adult English learners for Central European/Russia and East African Students. (suspended due to COVID-19)

>I also teach English online for a private School in China ages 5-13

I LOVE INTERCULTURAL RELATIONS!!

Here on Verbling I have students from all over the world and from many different professions. Mostly intermediate to advance business professionals.

I have also taught Business English in Colombia.

I have had the privileged of visiting;
China, Haiti, Kenya, U.A.E., Puerto Rico, Colombia as well as lived and studied in Canada.

I am an Ambassador in Cross-Cultural relations. I enjoy teaching English to new and experienced learners, I always try to make my lessons comical, energetic and visually stimulating.

As an educator I enjoy creating customized lesson plans for my students according to their language needs. My classes are conversation driven with breaks to emphasize grammar points and pronunciation. As a public speaker and leader, I enjoy finding what students are passionate about and customizing lesson that reinforce life skills.



Also, as a hip-hop lover I can teach hip-hop, rhyme and poetry classes. International business, traveling and life skills (Diversity and Inclusion, U.S. Business, Economics & Government/Civics) lessons.
