I moved to Tokyo in the Fall of 2019, and began working as an English Instructor with students of all ages and all skill levels.

Work Experience

Work Experience
Nova, English Instructor
2019 - 2020
Implemented Nova curriculum for one-on-one settings and group classes. My students included kinder students (as young as four), elementary students, junior high school students, high school students and university students. Their skills ranged from very beginner to nearly fluent, and every 40-minute lesson, regardless of the level, began with conversational English skill building to increase trust between the student and teacher.
Queens High School for Language Studies, Social Studies Department Lead
2015 - 2019
I created Common Core and New York State Standards-aligned curriculum for five 9th and 10th grade World History classes. As the Department Lead, I facilitated weekly meetings with the Social Studies department to share strategies, vertically align skills, and address weaknesses in literacy throughout the grade levels and student profiles. Our New York State Regents Exam pass rate for World History was 87%, compared to the state average of 54%.
