About Heather W.

I am a Master Educator who loves to teach and learn. I know what it is like to learn another language and how difficult it can be. I also know how rewarding it is to increase confidence and grow and learn new things. I have taught large groups, small groups, and one on one. I love to get to know my students so we can feel comfortable in the learning environment to make mistakes and learn from them. I have experience with teaching reading, writing, conversing. Really all things English. I consider myself a kind and compassionate teacher who cares about each student. I taught at a great public high school for 10 years where I taught grades 9-12 and all levels including AP English. I also teach Adults who are business professionals wanting to improve their English to advance in their careers. In my free time I love reading, playing, biking, and being outside with my three young children. They keep me busy and active. I enjoy trying new foods and learning about others and their culture.
