I have been teaching English in Zurich since 1996 and have given more than 10,000 hours of instruction to students of all levels and ages. I have prepared students for TOEFL, GMAT, and the Cambridge exams.

In 2000 I began teaching private students and giving courses independently. In 2006 I received the SVEB 1 certificate after completing the required Ausbildung für Sprachkursleitende. I have taught students from the fields of banking, asset management, marketing, retail, design, law, and industry.

In addition to teaching English I have worked on many different English language projects ranging from proofreading books, CVs, and reports to writing presentations, and translating.

Before relocating to Switzerland I worked primarily in sales and marketing for the Marriott corporation and Alamo Rent-a-car. I was Senior Marketing Coordinator for Marriott and Sales Manager for Alamo.
