Native English speaker, experienced in teaching English as a Second language to adults, teenagers and children - Reading, writing and speaking.

Methodology

I teach for mastery. I care to get to know my student's goals and objectives so I can be of best service to them. I love being an educator and more so a motivator. I teach at my student's pace and I always remain positive, organized and disciplined.

Background

I am currently a high school Chemistry teacher. I work specifically with English Language learners on a daily basis. I have more than 7 years of experience teaching overall including a year spent in Brazil teaching English in classroom and private home settings.
