I have a TEFL certification and Bachelor's Degree, along with experience teaching English since 2007.

I have taught abroad in China, in large classroom settings for students, as well as in private tutoring sessions. I also taught adults Business English at a Chinese-English dictionary company.

In the US I have tutored foreign students, practicing conversational English and helping them with their grammar, tests, and acclimating to life in the US. I currently teach at an organization helping women from Afghanistan and Pakistan learn English. There I have designed the curriculum, created and administered assessment tests, and organized various classes.


I offer help for you at any level - beginner, intermediate, or advanced - English, and in any capacity. I can help with your conversational English, Business English, grammar, pronunciation, reading, and writing.

My approach is very hands-on, personal, and practical. It is important to me that you enjoy each lesson and that with each lesson you achieve a greater understanding of English and how it works, and that you feel more comfortable with the language with each practice.

I love to learn and share with each of my students and to learn about each other's culture and language.

I look forward to meeting you and beginning some fun and fruitful lessons!
