I am an international educator with five years’ experience teaching abroad. I have taught primary, secondary, and adult levels, from instructing fourth and fifth grade English in a public school to helping business professionals learn valuable skills to communicate with their clients.

I received my TEFL certificate from the International Teacher Training Organization in Guadalajara, México in 2012. In 2013, I taught English at a language center in Tlaquepaque, México, and secondary-level Informática at the British American School in Puerto Vallarta, México.
