  • Description

    I am an American teacher and writer with a Master's Degree and many years of experience. I am TEFL certified and experienced working with students with special needs. I have helped both children and adults to learn English in Thailand, Ecuador, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, and Germany. Since my teaching position in the United States offers me some time to travel during the summer, I have found Workaway to be a perfect way to visit and learn about other cultures. I love traveling, and meeting new people. I enjoy music, art, and I have great admiration for those who help others, including tutoring outside of school, raising money for those in need, and animal rescues. I can provide many references. Let's Skype sometime.

  • What else ...

    I believe no matter how long I teach, I can always learn something new. Traveling offers me the chance to share what I know, but also to learn and, very often, to make lifelong friends. While I do enjoy reading, creating art and doing crafts, and working on the computer, I like to be outside, exploring new places, hiking, and biking.
