I have more than ten years of experience guiding students of all ages and over forty different countries towards mastery of the English language. My Master's in TESOL and Bachelor's in Spanish Linguistics makes me a certified grammar expert. I tutor grades 4-College.

My tutoring style:

I love to laugh and have fun in the classroom, sometimes even bringing in online games to practice, but I'm very serious about every student putting in their best effort.  Making mistakes is an important part of the learning process, so we always, always have to at least try.  I'm willing to stay on a subject as long as it takes to make sure my students fully understand it, and I love, love, love questions!  The best thing about tutoring is that you are the boss!  I'm here to help with whatever you need, so be honest and open, and we'll work on overcoming those frustrating obstacles together, one step at a time.

Success story:

I've had so many success stories over the past decade that it's difficult to pick just one!  Most recently, an 8th grader came to me needing help with the High School Placement Test.  With my help, she passed after just two weeks.  I've had similar results with the SAT, TABE, IELTS, and even GMAT exams (fun fact- I earned a perfect 800 on my own SAT Verbal).  That said, it can be equally rewarding to develop long-term relationships with students that last the entire school year (or beyond).

Hobbies and interests:

I've got two kids of my own (ages 9 and 11), who keep me pretty busy.  Whenever I do have spare time, however, my favorite thing to do is take a nap!  That, or play video games (Pokemon, anyone?).  I also enjoy reading, writing, and traveling.
