Detailed Profile in English

About me

My family and I moved to the Dominican Republic in 2007. There I was immersed in Spanish. It was "sink or swim" and I wanted to SWIM.

Once your mind is open to learning a new language other languages become easier to pick up.

I begin doing a volunteer work in 2009 and had to learn Haitian Creole. I loved it and have become an advanced level speaker. My family and I had the privilege of being asked to help translate from Spanish to Creole in local area hospitals in the Dominican Republic after the Haiti 2010 earthquake.

Qualifications & Experience

I worked as a director, owner and teacher of a very successful English school in Dominican Republic.

I have taught English online with a culturally diverse group of students for the last 10 years.

I am able to uniquely tailor lessons to help my students achieve greater success in learning English as well as having a keen ear for pronunciation.

Teaching Approach

I enjoy getting to know my students. I want to know about how they plan to use their new language and with that information I can tailor my lesson to be of real benefit.

In addition, I feel grammar, vocabulary and conversation are important aspects that should be included in ESL teaching. My goal is to always have my student leaving the class having learnt something new!
