I am a native of San Diego, California, and I began teaching at 17 years of age. I have a passion for helping students to improve their English skills; it brings me joy to see a smile on their face when they begin to grow and are able to communicate.
I speak Spanish, and so I understand the challenges of learning another language. I am a life long learner, always seeking knowledge and techniques in order to assist students in achieving their goals. I am here for you. I am a competitor and champion (2002 World Beach Bocce Ball Championships) and I bring that same drive and determination to my teaching.
