About me

I'm a native English speaker, originally from New York, where I grew up and obtained my Bachelor's degree in Biology. I then lived in the UK for 33 years, as well as time in Australia for 9 months and time in Dublin, Ireland for 18 months. I relocated back to the US in May 2018 and now live in Las Vegas. I have been teaching ESL since 1990 and started teaching online in August 2018. I have taught children and adults from many different countries and I really enjoy teaching and helping my students reach their language goals.

Teaching Approach

My approach is adaptive. I work with each student individually and assess their needs and listen to their goals and then use resources specific to their level, skills and learning objectives. Most of all I like to make my lessons fun, memorable, entertaining and interactive. I encourage mistakes because they help you to learn and grow.
