My name is Toya and I am an energetic and fun-loving person who enjoys reading, traveling, and relaxing on the beach. Good food and music are also some of the finer things in life I like to enjoy.
I am a hardworking, dedicated, and passionate individual who loves helping others reach their full potential. I am an enthusiastic instructor that loves the language learning process. I graduated from American University with a Master’s degree in Spanish: Latin American Studies and a certification for Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL). I have received both experience as a teacher and a student through studying abroad, teaching abroad, and my professional teaching career in various university academic settings in and outside of the U.S. I studied in Spain for a semester of undergraduate studies and taught English in the Dominican Republic.
I provide live interactive lessons to help students improve their English conversation, pronunciation, and grammar skills. I can also provide you with customized writing instruction from the comfort of your HOME. During our lessons I strive for a learning environment that is fun, creative, and stimulating so that the language learning process may thrive. A student-centered environment is always my primary goal because the needs of the students should always come first.
