Master English teacher provides students from all corners of the world with fun and engaging lessons.

Methodology

It is through my love of phonics and unique teaching style that I am able to help students perfect and become fluent in one of the hardest languages in the world. I am also available to help students of all ages write properly, even those who's first language is English, since I believe the traditional school system lacks the available time and experience to teach students how to write creative, argumentative, and influential papers.    

Background

Learning and teaching are not only important to me but are defining aspects in my life. I've spent seven years in University immersing myself in the English language where I discovered that understanding and perfecting the language is the single most vital skill in building a successful career and future. I am so passionate about the importance of proper education that I homeschool my two young children as well as teach students from around the world to speak, read, and write English.
