For her work she has been awarded the 2015 HALT Award for Excellence in Teaching.

She’ve worked with different college students, proficiency levels, and group sizes. Knowing how to speak a foreign language does not turn you into a good teacher. There is a lot of skills and tools you need to acquire and learn in order to become one. She’ve learned a great deal about the psychology of learning, effective motivation, progress testing, classroom control, and many others which she has acquired through years of training and education. She has a certification in Effective College Instruction with the The Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) endorsed by the American Council of Education.
