À propos de moi

It’s a strong belief of mine that teaching is the most important job on the planet. Our knowledge is what we pass on from generation to generation. It allows us to flourish and advance as human beings. How are we going to know how to do something if nobody shows us?

I was a long term substitute teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District for 8 years, teaching ages 5-17. I taught English in Taiwan for two years. The first year I taught children, the second year I taught adults. I taught English at a Chinese Prep School for two years, now I teach students privately at any age.
 
I love teaching whether I am in the classroom, or teaching someone a new skill. It makes me feel like I’m giving back to humanity in an extremely profound way. Being a genuine lover of all types of people, I am eager to explore, travel, and experience new things.
 
I believe my background as an actress, writer, Spanish speaker, Mandarin learner, and musician, will add a broad and interesting dynamic to my teaching style. I believe a successful teacher is someone who takes special interests in their student’s abilities, but also exposes them to new worlds. My goal as a teacher is to create a supportive, fascinating, environment. One that acknowledges different learning styles, encourages students to expand their minds, and reach their full potential.
