I have been tutoring with Cambly for 2 years and 9 months, and I have more than 3000 hours of first-rate tutoring experience under my belt. In addition, I have 1000 plus chats with a majority of them being IELTS training. These hours and chats have enabled me to be honored as one of the top IELTS and general tutors on Cambly.
I completed the Cambridge "How to Teach IELTS" certificate, and I specialize in IELTS preparation. I've helped many students on Cambly 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 score through hard work and passion.
I worked 20 some years in Supply Chain Logistics to include 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 in my hometown of Ephrata, Pennsylvania (the USA). I have lived and worked abroad in several countries: Costa Rica, Chile, Peru, West Germany, Thailand, 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.
