關於我

I am a linguist with a degree in Translation and Interpreting for Spanish, English, and German. I am a specilist in phonetics and learning with a broad understanding of linguistics and experience in learning around 15 languages at different levels. I currently teach Spanish. I have five years of professional experience in translating, teaching, and managing projects. I like to deconstruct hard topics, chop them into small pieces, prepare exhaustive exercises to overcome them, and use said drills to produce terrific progress in students. I believe in research and I enjoy the process of putting effort into preparing extracted content for consumption by learners.

At the moment my lessons include conversation and coaching, but I won't hesitate to explain tough grammar or (devilish) phonetics to you if that's what you need. :)
