PART-TIME ESL SPECIALISTS

​ANNA HAMP
ESL Specialist
Contact

I have taught ESL/EFL for over 20 years in three different countries. I was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary and received my two Master’s degrees (in English Language and Literature and in Linguistics) there. After traveling around Europe, my husband and I moved to California in 2002 and then to Colorado in 2016. In California, I taught at three different Intensive English Programs and I am excited to continue here at the ESL Academy. I spend most of my free time with my three children: hiking, biking, skiing, and exploring Colorado and beyond.

I was born and raised in Colorado; and although, I have lived in different countries and states, Colorado continues to be my permanent place of resident. Traveling is my passion. I have lived in Costa Rica, Spain, and South Korea and have visited over 15 countries on four different continents. In between my travels, I graduated from the University of Colorado Denver with a Master’s degree in Culturally Linguistic Diverse Education with a TESOL Certificate. I have been teaching for over two years. Prior to that, I worked for an international company which ignited a passion for all things international. Working with international students is such a rewarding experience, I cannot imagine doing anything else!

My dad tells me that ev​en when I was in 3rd grade I wanted to be a teacher. I've been fortunate and dedicated enough to say that teaching is now both my passion and my career. I originally wanted to be an elementary school teacher, but living in Thailand from 2007 to 2009 was a life-changing experience that put me on a completely different and wonderful trajectory: adult English education. Since then, I've worked with hundreds of incredible English learners in private schools, universities, and colleges in Colorado and California. I obtained my Master's in TESOL at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and am thrilled to now be a part of the ESL Academy. As a Denver native, I love everything of outdoors. Give me a tent and hiking boots, and I'm happy. ​

I was born and raised in New York. I received my Bachelor’s degree in linguistics from Binghamton University and my Master's in TESOL from Teacher’s College, Columbia University. I have experience teaching in a variety of ESL programs. I am also an avid language learner as well, having studied three different languages throughout my academic career. In my moments of spare time, I enjoy reading, dancing and outdoor activities such as hiking and snowboarding.
