I feel like I'm born to teach! I like seeing my students get better and more confident with their English and I find it really rewarding. I'm very sociable, so I also enjoy meeting lots of different types of people and really enjoy the conversations we have.

The best part is talking to people from different cultures who often make me think differently about the world.

I love music. I play a few different instruments and I'm always writing music, playing in bands and doing concerts.

I am an effective teacher not only because of my knowledge and experience in and out of the field, but because I easily connect with my students and truly understand their aims.

Whether they are to achieve a particular score on a proficiency test, complete a presentation, improve negotiation skills, or just improve their level of general English, my students' success in reaching their goals is my own success and is what drives me.

I love to travel, experiencing new cultures and facing new challenges. I try to learn to cook at least one dish from each country I visit. Currently, I'm perfecting my paella and sangria here in Spain.
