I am a U.S. native English speaker. I have a background in teaching in Education with Western Governors University. I currently have been working for my local public school district in the field of education for the last 5 years. Teaching and learning is my passion. I also love the beauty of languages. My philosophy is that learning is a life journey and I would like to be a part of the journey with you. When it comes to learning a language I don't think it is just about perfect grammar, or even enhancing a skill or improving an asset. Language is about bridging the gaps and breaking the barriers in communicating, which should be fun. I differentiate my teaching style to the student needs so that that individual and overall goals can be met.
