7 years ago, I picked up everything and moved abroad. I went to Guadalajara, Mexico for a teaching certification course. Since then, I have lived in 5 different cities in Mexico and El Salvador, while teaching English as a foreign language. I also completed both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. For the past 3 years, I have been working exclusively online, teaching English, Spanish and other subjects. I also work as an instructor designer, creating English language lessons for an online company based in Asia.
While working online, I was lucky to also have the opportunity to become involved in charity work in El Salvador. I started a project called "The English Kit" which helped provide free English materials, and teacher training, to local schools and organizations. This then led to a greater demand for training, and I began hosting seminars for local English teachers, who often had little to no formal teacher training or qualifications.
I have enjoyed immersing myself in the culture and language in Latin America and have been fortunate enough to travel to many countries, including Guatemala, Nicaragua, Belize, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica, Bermuda, and Colombia while living abroad.
Please see the "Online Lessons" and "Services" links for more information on the classes and training seminars that I provide. In addition, in my blog, you will find articles on my experiences abroad, including budget travel and working as an online instructor.
