I've been a language learner and language teacher for over 11 years. I started my language learning adventures in France and that's why I ended up becoming a language teacher: I fell in love with languages! I've taught English in the United States, France, South Korea, Colombia and I've had the pleasure of teaching children, junior high school students, high school students, university students and business executives at the Bank of New York Mellon. Currently, I'm teaching English and working on language learning projects with Simple3, LLC and L1and2, LLC.
