I have been involved in language training most of my adult life, having taught English as a Second Language to company executives, as well as middle school, high school and college students.
Since 1996 I have run a Spanish immersion program in Cuernavaca. Recently we began offering a “virtual” Spanish curriculum- hence my interest in online learning.
In my online English courses you will enjoy fun, engaging online conversation or grammar sessions with plenty of media-rich prompts to get you speaking, which is the key to mastering a foreign language!
I am a native English speaker from the United States. After graduate school, I moved to Mexico where I have lived and worked for over thirty years. I am married to a Mexican and together we have raised four children in a bi-cultural household. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, and watching movies with my family.
