About this tutor

I love my work. My students and I establish a foundation in  trust in a relaxing and enjoyable way.

I work in relation to the student's needs and personal/professional perspectives. I often work with various articles as a point for clarifying vocabulary, idioms, other mysterious phrases in the English language.

I also work extensively with speech and pronunciation to help others gain confidence in expressing themselves in the language. 

Humor, compassion, trust, and enjoyable are the hallmarks of my teaching and learning experience. I look forward to meeting my future students and guiding them to improve their English skills.

Thank you!

Meeting interesting people. All my students are interesting to me. I enjoy learning about people and their perspectives on life. I find that students often teach me as well because they often ask such interesting questions about the language and the culture.

I enjoy watching students gain confidence and express themselves with more ease through our work together.

I am grateful that I have the skills and knowledge of the language to give what I know to my students.

I find it a wonderful and enjoyable cultural experience, as well.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Initially, I ask questions to assess what the student needs in terms of speech/pronunciation, etc. 

I ask questions to get to know the student and determine between us what tools can be used to better meet their needs.

Pronunciation, reading aloud, conversation, writing for strengthening expressive critical thinking around a particular article or topic.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a masters degree in teaching English from The School for International Training. I taught in Mexico, the US, Spain and parts of Central America. 

I have 20 years of experience teachiing English.

I have taught at Duke University, Durham Tech and individually through tutoring. I also taught at a design college in Veracruz, Mexico and a farmer's cooperative in Costa Rica. I taught local people in Barcelona, Nicaragua, Mexico and Costa Rica.

I was the educational program coordinator for EBBEC - a Latino organization in Boston providing classes, immigration education, and community connections.
