Hello, I am Rebecca, and I have been teaching English to speakers of other languages since 1999. I was born in Managua, Nicaragua, but I had lived in 7 different countries by the time I graduated from high school! My own journey as an ESL student has given me a distinct understanding of the challenges and rewards that my students experience when learning English.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching. As an ESL teacher, I like to create and maintain an active language classroom where my students are motivated to participate in their own learning experience and encouraged to meet their individual goals. I love getting to know my students and share in their success.
On a personal note, I love seeing the world, so my husband and I travel with our two kids whenever we get a chance. I also love running, snowboarding, reading, and cooking foods from different cultures.
