I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Linguistics, hold a certificate in TEFL, and will begin work on a master's degree in English this fall. I have more than ten years of experience teaching and tutoring students in composition, literature, grammar, and ESL. I am passionate about helping students succeed and develop lifetime love of learning. By evaluating areas of student weakness and creating a clear plan to strengthen these areas, I have seen my students grow dramatically in both their skills and confidence. I worked extensively with curriculum development and teacher training in an English-speaking K-12 school in Indonesia, which grew to more than 600 students and received international accreditation in less than ten years. I have visited many countries in Southeast Asia. Besides traveling and spending time with family and friends, I enjoy running, gardening, and playing the piano and flute.
