About this tutor

We allow students to become in depth in the area that they feel more comfrotable in. I work with students that struggle and help them become more open of their problems while becoming more engaged to fix it themselves. It is my passion to help student feel more comfortable using the English language through speaking,writing, and poerty (S.W.A.P). 

I have dedicated a many hours to helping students feel comfortable learning the English language. I spent 6 years tutoring students in English and earn a TEFL license (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

I enjoy getting students to a place where they are comfortable enough to ask questions when they don't understand or to be be brave enough to ask me to repeat myself. I enjoy the moment when students tell me they get it and they understand, even the "wow, that was easy" moments.
