CELTA certified ESL / TEFL teacher, tutor, editor. Spoken accent reduction and improvement.

Methodology

Students first. Students speak 80% of the lesson.

Background

I am a native English speaker (American, New York) (M.A., CELTA), hoping to work with adults and children.
I am presently located in San Diego. I can relocate for the right job.
Since receiving my CELTA, I have worked with adult groups and individuals in numerous business and academic and settings. I have worked with teens in groups and individual tutoring sessions. I taught government agencies (IMANOR, the Moroccan agency which sets standards for health and safety; MASEN, one of the largest solar power enterprises in the world; CMR, the Moroccan retirement benefits division). I also taught at CDG and CDG Capital, the Kingdom's two main investment and growth agencies.
Since leaving Morocco I have freelanced as a tutor / editor in Spain and Scotland.
