About the Teacher:

Hello! My name is Saima, and I’m thrilled to say this is my 18th year teaching English to children and foreign students.

I spent 8 years teaching English to students in Japan. Currently, I am working as an online ESL instructor. I love teaching and watching the young minds shape and mold into wonderful readers and writers. My job as a facilitator is to develop enriching, engaging lessons that stretch the thinking of all my young students.

I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in science in 1996 and went on to get another Bachelor’s degree in Education in 1999 from the A.M. University. I have been living in Texas for about 15 years and have travelled quite a bit all over the world.
