About this tutor

I love teaching American English and culture. I want to help you achieve your goals, whether they be school-related, career-related, or improving your everday English.

I have a Masters in Teaching ESL and a BA in Business. I began teaching adults in 2008 and then taught in public schools since 2011. I recently retired from public school teaching, but want to continue working with older students (10+) and adults in an online environment.

Please contact me and let's talk about how I can help you meet your goals!

I love seeing people, young and old, become confident in English and American culture so they can accomplish their goals. I love when a student gains confidence with English and succeeds academically, or when an employee is confident in their professional communications. I love when moms and dads can communicate effectively with their children's teachers, or doctors, or anyone in their community.

Make sure they have the experience and knowledge to help you reach your goals.
