Work with me

Do you want to learn a new language, or improve your skills in a language you have some experience in? How do you fit language learning into your already busy life? How do you measure your progress? How do you set realistic and measurable goals?

My one-on-one services begin with a series of language proficiency assessments and a comprehensive time and lifestyle survey. After assessing your current skills and your next set of goals, you will receive a personalized plan to reach those goals that include prescriptive activities and materials to fit learning a new language and growing your proficiency level into your daily life.

I hold a BA in Theater Arts and Foreign Languages and an MA in the Teaching of Languages. I hold certifications to Spanish, language immersion, middle and high school English, English as a second language, reading and kindergarten and am currently completing my certification to teach French. I have taught languages for more than two decades on three continents. My thousands of students have ranged in age from preschool to post-university. I have taught beginner, intermediate and advanced learners in both school (K-12), private settings and at the university level, where I served as coordinator of a language immersion program in addition to my university classes. I am a certified language proficiency rater with experience in multiple languages. I have the knowledge, skills and experience to help learners reach their goals. I have presented to language teachers at the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages’ annual conference, at the BETT show in London and for school districts. My work has been published in ACTFL’s The Language Educator.
