My English teaching experience

I'm from Irvine, California, and have been teaching English for over 10 years. Because Southern California is such a melting pot, I've been able to gain experience there teaching ESL to students from many different countries - mostly Korea, Taiwan, and China. I also recently started studying Mandarin on my own; I love the culture exchange that comes with learning a new language.

Teaching English at Compass

I wish I could study Mandarin in a place like Compass! Compass provides a great environment for English-learners to immerse themselves in the language and practice their speaking skills. I enjoy the small class sizes because I can give each student personal attention.

Learning tips to ESL learners

Be brave and speak up. The best way to learn is to put yourself out there, make mistakes, and ask questions.
