I am a writer and a teacher, and I live in Southern California, which is a very diverse area. I spend my free time with my daughters who are 15 and 12, and I also love to spend my free time running, doing yoga, reading and writing. I also love being outdoors, and winter is my favorite season. I also love animals; we have a German shepherd named Samson.
I am a native English speaker of American English. I grew up in Southern California.
I have been teaching English for 19 years, both K-12 and college. I have taught English and ESL. I have a bachelor's degree in General Literature from the University of Southern California, a master's in creative writing from the University of Southern California, and a second master's in English: Rhetoric/Composition and TESL from Cal Poly Pomona. As part of my master's in TESL, I have a TESOL certificate.
I have taught English as a Second Language students my entire career. I currently teach English at four community colleges in Southern California.
Before I was an educator, I was a reporter and copy editor for ten years.
I believe all students can learn and improve as long as they have a plan and have the right help and guidance. I'm excited to help students online and love meeting people from around the world. I will target my instruction to your needs and goals, whether they be to improve your speaking, listening, reading or writing or all of the above!
