When I lived in Spain for over a year, I taught one-to-one private English lessons to children, university students, and adults while attending university in Murcia. When I returned to Canada, I decided to continue teaching and make it a full-time career as I enjoyed my experience teaching English so much while living abroad. Since my return to Canada, I have been teaching English 40+ hours per week to all levels and ages. I enjoy assisting students while sharing a bit of my culture with them and hearing about theirs.
