TEFL Instruction

In March of 2020, my life took a turn I never expected. Like millions of people around the world, I found myself in the midst of a pandemic and sheltering with my small family.

We watched our daughter and her classmates, indeed entire school systems, struggle as the months turned into another school calendar year of remote and hybrid learning. Remote learning was mandatory, and not easy for a student who thrived in a classroom setting. I began to focus more on these struggles, and decided to dive head-on into my desire to teach English as a second language.
