I have been teaching English as another language since 1995, and I have loved it! I received my AA at Ventura College in 1991, my BA at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 1993, and my Masters in Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MATESOL) at Azusa Pacific University in 2001. I began teaching English as a Second Language at Oxnard Adult and Continuing Education, and once I received my MA, I taught in Taiwan. After that I began teaching at different community colleges. I taught at College of the Canyons, Los Angeles Mission College, and Glendale Community College until 2004, and I have been teaching at Ventura College since 2001. I enjoyed getting an education, and teaching English as another language is a joy. I also love reading, gardening, hiking and spending time with my loved ones!
I graduated from the University of Southern California with a Master's of Arts in Teaching, TESOL. I am TESOL certified with an experience of teaching ESL for over four years. I began teaching ESL abroad in 2013 right after I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Biology from the California State University, Channel Islands. I have taught primary, secondary, and university students from South Korea, Turkey, and Japan. I have also taught English courses to international students for The Language Academy here in the United States. Helping people achieve their academic goals makes teaching truly enjoyable and rewarding. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to new places and meeting new people because it gives me the opportunities to learn about different cultures and lifestyles.
I have been teaching ESL for 16 years. I began teaching in Barcelona, Spain in 2002. Since then, I have taught at various schools around California in Berkeley, Oakland, Santa Barbara, Oxnard, and Ventura. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Cinema from San Francisco State University and a Masters Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language and Applied Linguistics from Cal State University Northridge. I have also studied Photography and Graphic Design. When I am not teaching, I love hiking, camping, kayaking, photography, music, reading, writing poetry and short stories, and dancing as much as I can!
