Joined Skype English Class Now
I am a teacher, and I love teaching. It's a big part of my identity. I have been teaching literature at the university level since 2003. It has been rewarding, and my joy only increased when I started having children and got three little enthusiastic students of my very own. I practice home-based education, and the four of us enjoy spending time together learning to paint, read, play drums, throw and catch a ball, and make rocket ships with building blocks. I am their primary teacher, but they teach me too. Every day, I learn something new.
I also love languages. I am a native English speaker, but I have also dabbled in other languages, mainly for the joy of it. My education has focused on the study of literature for two primary reasons: I love to lose myself in the beautiful pictures language can create, and I am fascinated with how many meanings can be stuffed into a simple phrase. I sincerely enjoy unpacking those meanings. I also love listening to the sound of language. My husband and I are huge fans of Asian, Spanish, African and European creative content, specifically music, films, dramas and anime.
Over the last few years, I have completed a few significant writing projects, and my job at the university included writing coaching. I have also worked as a book editor and proofreader. My use of English is impeccable, but I don't consider my own English education complete. There is always more to discover, and I discover every day.
I invite you to come and learn with me.
