I am a 30-year-old California, USA native. I was born and raised in California and have been teaching for 15 years. I have given lessons to beginning through advanced students of all ages. My lessons are structured to my individual students' needs. They can be conversation only, interview only, grammar and conversation, test preparation, etc.
