I am a professional ESL tutor (native English speaker) with over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience, looking to find paying students on italki. I am I would also be open to a language exchange for Greek lessons (I married into a Greek family). I am from Chicago. I have worked in a language school, BIR Training Center, as an ESL teacher and coordinator of our Language Learning Center for over 8 years--check us out at (www.birtraining.edu). I love teaching and learning languages and plan to be a lifelong language learner. In addition, I like to learn about other cultures, and travel to new places. When I'm not teaching, I love to spend time with my family. I love music and my taste is very eclectic, ranging from classic and progressive rock, metal, jazz and classical. I love reading and to try new experiences as well.
