I was born and raised in a city outside of Detroit, Michigan, USA. I went to college at Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I received a bachelor's degree in secondary art education and secondary English education. Shortly thereafter, I began substitute teaching and tutoring in ESL at a local company.
I lived and taught English in Japan for a couple of years, and then I moved to New York, where I have taught at an English language school for over four years. My duties include academic preparation, TOEFL preparation, teaching general English, and teaching business English. I acquired my CELTA certificate in 2012 and am currently earning my DELTA diploma.
My goals include pursuing a Master's degree in TESOL and training future ESL teachers.
