Welche Sprachen sprechen Sie?
I am a native English speaker and know some French and German.
Warum unterrichten Sie gern?

Was hat Sie nach Berlin geführt?
After getting my CELTA in Vancouver, I was offered a position to teach Financial English to Banking students in Berlin. Soon after that I was hired by GLS and suddenly my one year teaching abroad has turned into almost six and counting...
Wo in Berlin trifft man Sie oft?
Savignyplatz & Kantstraße restaurants and ice cream shops. I live in Charlottenburg and a client of mine had taken me on a tour of different parts of the district for each of her lessons to practise her English speaking skills. It's a great area and my friends and I love trying out new restaurants, walking in the parks, and exploring the shops.
Wo würden Sie gern für 1 Jahr leben?
Norway or Switzerland. They have mountains and plenty of places to kayak or swim. Norway is the closest to Canadian landscape that I have travelled too and it has that European mentality which I love: Live life and enjoy it.
