ExperienceA certified professional coach and skillful linguist fluent in 5 languages, I graduated with a BA honours in Economics and Foreign languages and a Post Graduate degree in Education and teaching practice.
Having travelled vastly and lived, studied and worked as an educator to all age groups in both Europe and the USA, I am a confident and cosmopolitan individual able to deal with a plethora of people from diverse backgrounds and abilities in a wide range of situations.
I have had 15 years of experience in teaching, leading and motivating students to attain their best in life. I have been an educator in one of the most prestigious schools within the Houston district and also in one of the top ten high schools in the United Kingdom.
I feel that I am an outstanding educator and mentor trusted and respected by my students and the community. I am always available to encourage and nurture the talents of my students. Continually throughout my work I help motivate those with personal problems in their home life working diligently to provide whatever needs to ensure success both in their academic and social lives. I rigorously strive to mould the minds and lives of the future generation, acting as their role model and guide. My high standards and results orientated methods are reflected in the classroom.
I have often, in my teaching experience, delivered thought provoking and creative speeches to motivate and educate young minds and also had some of my writing and poetry published.
I have a "no nonsense" personality and am a very driven and passionate woman who thrives on challenges and determining ways to get through the obstacles that life throws at us.
Having relocated my life from the UK to the USA and started from "scratch", I encountered a range of roadblocks, yet, was able to surmount them achieving a very successful, healthy and balanced life style in Houston, Texas.
My life experiences, trials,tribulations and training led me to the path of coaching also where I could share my natural intuitive ability and life skills to and guide others. I am a conscientious, capable, astute, intelligent and wise human being, reflected in my coaching/teaching style. I am a consummate professional and have a wonderful way with people. "There is not a single person whom I have met who would not change a part of their life for better...No one is perfect. I believe we are all capable of discovering and living our true life and loves. You just need to dig deep, discover, visualize, believe, act and it will be delivered..."
When I am not coaching or motivating minds in the classroom, I pursue my passion of acting in theatre and independent films, composing songs on the piano and creative writing. I also enjoy a healthy life style running, playing tennis, dancing, working out, ensuring that it is an integral part of my daily routine, providing for a more balanced life full of happiness!
"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is not path and leave a trail."
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.......If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost: that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them" (Henry Thoreau)
"I was taught at an early age that you make own life. You make your own happiness, your own unhappiness. My philosophy is that what you put out comes back to you. I firmly believe that." (Cmyly Ladd)
HobbiesI also am in the performing arts and have a passion for music, theatre and creative writing..I am represented by a talent agency here in Houston, where I also work in film, theatre, commercials and voice over.
