ESL instructor with 15 years exp. Test prep for TOEFL, Cambridge, FCE

Methodology

I try to throw as much wisdom and practice possible about the English language while maintaining a fun and practical approach to raising their level of English, be it elementary to advanced to proficient through student assessment and goal planning via the various tests they may be studying for or any humanistic goal they want to improve their English for.

Background

I learned Spanish by living in Madrid and teaching English for 7 years. I'd like to start my own English academy aimed at fun and cultural awareness and professionalism. My students have all continued successfully in their careers and email me all the successes they have attained. They are like family to me. I wish I could teach them more!
