Licensed teacher with a passion for teaching English as a Second Language in Kansas City

Methodology

My teaching method is to be interactive and engaging. I want my students speaking and feeling confident, so they do as much talking as I do. We create an end goal and I create games and fun activities to reach that goal. I look at the way my students learn best and cater to their unique style and needs. I approach every class with energy and I love listening to the feedback my students have for me; I'm always willing to adapt if something is not working.

Background

I have a degree in Elementary Education and Spanish. I have worked with over 600 students in the last 5 years, Kindergarten through high school. I spent a semester in Chile teaching English as a Second Language, where my students went from having a fear of speaking English to loving English class!
