About me


An Online Teacher

Dad was part of the Diplomatic Corp and our travels around the world allowed me to discover a whole wide world of languages and cultures from a very young age.  I was instantly attracted by the sounds that the languages resonated and therefore became instantly interested in English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and others.  After graduating from Cairo American College, I taught English face-to-face part-time, then later full-time,  in a prestigious Language Center called Berlitz. I was taught the Direct method approach, an effective method that showed me how important it is to use the target language exclusively in class to all students.

About one of my studies

Diploma in Cairo American College

I was so fortunate of being allowed to study my whole high school education in an International School in Cairo, Egypt called "Cairo American College".  I was able to consolidate my knowledge with the English language with exceptional teachers I had at the time.  I was also involved in English theater and literature.
