OWNER, CURRICULUM DESIGNER AND OPERATOR OF WORK-LIFE SPANISH.
As a long-time student of Spanish, I did not grow up speaking the language at home. My Spanish-language abilities have come instead from years of classroom study and practical use through living and working in Spain and Chile and traveling throughout Latin America. Because of these experiences, I understand how a foreign language may not come easily to those who try to learn it outside of a bilingual, bi-cultural environment. At the same time, I also know that with time and effort, you can speak and write in a new language – and it can do wonders for you both professionally and personally.
I personally have taught Spanish at every level to a wide variety of students in Denver, Boston, Washington, D.C and Santiago, Chile. At the moment, I am especially interested in the use of new technologies in the classroom, and also in the practice of teaching to both sides of the brain as a motivating factor in the learning process. I hold a Master's degree in Spanish Language and Culture from the Universidad de Salamanca (Salamanca, Spain), a Massachusetts State teaching license, a CELTA certificate from the University of Cambridge and a Bachelor's degree in International Affairs from the University of Colorado.
