Hi there! I am a native Spanish speaker, and a qualified teacher. After studying Violin at the Superior Conservatory of Asturias (Spain), I decided to study a Master´s degree in teaching skills. During these years of training, I also got a lot of experience teaching children from 3 years old up to adults of 70! I think a good sense of fun and humour are important, and I am always keen to build my knowledge and experience in different educational fields.
I am a certified language instructor and translator with a large professional experience. I received my BA degree and PGCE certification in Granada and finished two masters on translation in Madrid and Barcelona. I have taught Spanish and Arabic in three different countries (Egypt, Spain and Denmark) to students of all levels, from beginners to advanced, and with different interest, from conversational to business. Alongside my teaching experience, I also worked as writer, editor and copyeditor for Berlitz Corporation creating their new Spanish material. I love teaching and helping my students reaching their goals using new, creative and dynamic techniques.
