🍎 Welcome to my page 🍎
Learn about my classes here.
◻️ I am a TESL-certified teacher. I received my teaching certificate from Portland State University in a 280 hour program.
◻️ I have a bachelor’s degree in Arts and Letters. I specialized with a minor in Linguistics.
◻️ I love reading, writing, and teaching English.
◻️ I have taught both in-person and online. I have had successful students of all levels and language backgrounds.
◻️ I am from the United States, and am a native English speaker.
◻️ I grew up in the state of Oregon, and speak with a clear, standard American accent.
◻️ I love animals, art, and music.
◻️ I know how to draw, oil paint and do some computer programming.
I use a “task based” teaching method. This means that I introduce grammar and vocabulary information slowly, while helping you practice a particular real life language task. I make sure it is clear why you are learning a piece of information.
I use real world texts and scenarios to make the information I teach as relevant and beneficial for you as possible.

I teach all levels!
Beginners: If you do not speak English at all, I can help you. I love to teach new speakers. Learning a language can seem scary at first, and my goal is to make it less scary! I speak slowly and clearly, provide gentle feedback, and will teach you at a fair pace.

Intermediate-to-advanced: If you already know some English, or are even at a near-native level, I can also help you! I love grammar and the technical side of English. I can tailor my classes to your level, focus on the skills you want to learn, and create resources just for you. I can help you advance your skills to the next level.
