I have been in education for over ten years. I have a background in elementary education and have a California Teaching Credential. I love to travel and most recently, I taught at an international school in Italy where I had to opportunity to meet people from all over the world. While living there, I taught private English lessons in the afternoon. I worked with adults and high school age students. As I was learning Italian myself, I realized how challenging it can be to learn another language. My goal is to make learning English approachable, practical, and fun. I believe in staying positive and providing constructive feedback to help students grow. I love learning about other cultures and think language is a powerful tool. I would like to help others achieve their goal of learning English.
