Hi! Thank you for visiting my page and taking a moment to learn a little about me.
I teach English as a Second Language and literacy to young children and teens after school and on weekends. As a writer and language learner for many years, I am passionate about the power of words and expression and how it influences the way we communicate, grow and interact with each other in our daily lives.
As our world becomes more technologically advanced, I am dedicated to working with my students to develop their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. It imperative for the coming generation of 21st-century learners, leaders, thinkers, and doers to be able to face the very human challenges of life.
My passion and journey
Beyond the classroom, I found myself drawn to opportunities to expand students’ expression in after-school art, music, and dance clubs. I had the chance to visit students in their homes, where I learned about their daily joys and struggles.
Since returning to the U.S., I have worked with students of many walks of life and cultural backgrounds. It has been an honor to open the hearts and minds of these students as I learn from them as well.
What do you do in your work?
Why did you move to Washington D.C.?
I moved to Washington, D.C. in 2015 to begin work as a teacher in DC public schools. While this opportunity allowed me to grow and develop as an educator, I noticed the many ways that things were not “working” for the highest good of all children and staff.
Sadly, this”let down” in the promise of public and charter schools is a story reiterated by many of the teachers, parents, and children with whom I have worked. As a tutor, I hope to bridge that gap between “what is” and “what is possible” for children and teens to fulfilling their goals and aspirations and learning to their fullest extent
Is this what you do full-time?
