Born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised near Chicago, Illinois, I have a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Illinois, with minors in psychology and Spanish. My experience studying Spanish at my university changed my life. (See how)

I successfully completed a Master’s-level course entitled “Methods and Materials for Teaching English as a Second Language” from the Illinois Resource Center.

I was a member of TESOL (Teachers of English for Speakers of Other Languages) for 8 years, and attended their annual conventions of 8,000 of the best English teachers all over the world, accessing the most up-to-date methods and materials.

I’ve been helping my students learn English for 20 years, often using innovative approaches.
