About Me

********************* CONVERSATION €17 *********************
------------------------------------------ CLASS €24 ------------------------------------------

I am an English-Spanish translator and teacher currently living in Spain. I first started teaching at NIU, Illinois, USA, as a T.A. and, once I graduated from my Master's degree I started to work as a Court interpreter and translator. After a few years I came to Spain, where I am teaching English and Spanish, while I still work as a translator (specialized in Psychology). Being a translator helps me better understand the process of learning a foreign language as an adult, and develop my teaching and language coaching techniques. Let me show you how - let's build your English (or Spanish) skills together and improve what you already have. You will enjoy learning with me!

Soy profesora de inglés americano y vivo en España. Empecé dando clase de español en la universidad de NIU, en Illinois, en EEUU, pero me vine para España, donde llevo varios años dando clase de inlgés a españoles. Soy traductora, así que puedo comunicarme en español cuando sea necesario: a veces la traducción es una herramienta muy útil en una clase de inglés. Prueba unas clases conmigo y verás cómo aprendes. Una vez que conozca tu nivel, puntos débiles que haya que trabajar, tus necesidades específicas y tus preferencias, trabajaremos juntos para conseguir lo que hasta ahora no has conseguido: empezar a hablar, a comunicarte en inglés y a ganar la confianza y soltura que necesitas. Y, a partir de ahí, ir subiendo de nivel hasta donde te propongas llegar.
