I am 28 years old and currently live in Utah, U.S.A. My accent is from North America.
Fantasy is a love of mine. I love to read fantasy novels and comics and have deep analytical discussions about the world. Rocks and gems are my weaknesses. I have a growing collection because I love shiny objects. Running water sounds in a chilly environment is my favorite place to visit and relax. Spanish music is my favorite type of music.

My lessons & teaching style
I like to focus on good communication skills such as tone, punctuation, imperatives and word stress.
I value critical thinking, confidence and independent thinking.
I will teach vocabulary in a context that is interesting to the student. Pictures, videos, and AR stickers with green screen technology will be used to engage the student. This will help students relax and engage their senses.
I desire to have a fun and relaxing environment with professionalism. I want to know the real you such as dreams, fun memories and hobbies.
For younger students, I'll be active and energetic with games and awards. For older students, I'll be professional and comical in a calming atmosphere.
