About Me

Ever since I was a little girl, I love to learn and I love to teach what I know well. I am deeply interested and also skilled in verbal and non verbal communication. One of my hobbies and part time jobs has been teaching english to kids, college students, business men and women, and retired persons. In helping others to learn english I feel that many bridges have been built on many levels such as in the realm of interpersonal communication, in the testing out how different methodologies of learning languages work and in seeing how language shapes and reshapes how we see the world. I am a native English and a native Spanish speaker. My method for teaching english is to spark enthusiasm and fearlessness in conversation and in discovering the logic of grammar structure. I am also a physician, midwife, a homeopath, an currently a student of neural therapy, and someone whose other hobbies are walking in nature, reading, traveling and silent meditation.
