San Diego Middle School Teacher and College Instructor specializes in ESL/Spanish, M.Ed, over 12 years of experience


I love teaching!
I enjoy making learning fun and easy to understand. I've been teaching for over 12 years at every level (middle school, high school and college level). I use a variety of strategies to meet the needs of my students.


I have been in the teaching field for over 12 years. My class sizes have ranged from 2 - 50 in a wide range of settings (college, public school and private school).
I am flexible, patient, and goal-oriented. My students have had great success in my classes, whether passing their TOEFL exams or moving up to a higher level in English or Spanish.
