Profession: Celta-Certified English Teacher & IELTS Trainer
Teaching Experience: I have been tutoring with Cambly for a little over 4 years, and I have more than 4050 hours of first-rate tutoring experience under my belt. In addition, I have over 2000 sessions with more than half of them being IELTS training. These hours and sessions have enabled me to be honored as one of the top IELTS and general tutors on Cambly (super tutor).
My education, work experience, and wisdom have enabled me to assist many of my students on Cambly to raise their IELTS speaking scores by .5 to 1 point over a 1 to 3 month period of time. Ultimately, it's the student who achieves the required scores through hard work and passion.
I worked 20 some years in Supply Chain Logistics including for two major international companies: Pfizer and Bechtel. After living abroad in Chile and learning a second language, Spanish, I decided to change my profession to help others learn and improve their English.
Currently, I am living somewhere in the Philippines. I have lived and worked abroad in several countries: Thailand, Costa Rica, Chile, Peru, West Germany, and Japan. In addition, I completed my CELTA certificate in Bogotá Colombia. Additionally, I served 4 years in the U.S. Army to include 2 years in West Germany during the Cold War era.
I look forward to helping you with your English learning goals.
