I've been an ESL teacher for over 10 years and have taught students of all ages. For the past three years, I have concentrated on preparing students for both the IELTS and TOEFL exams. I am fluent in Mandarin-Chinese and have found this very helpful in working with Chinese students in terms of bridging cultural/linguistic gaps. I am currently employed at a charter school with a majority Hispanic population and have enjoyed learning so many new things about their culture and language.
