I'm a native speaker from Ensenada, Mexico, and have utilized Spanish and English on an ongoing basis in professional and social settings. I focus specifically on the assignment at hand, whether it's a 5th grade student in Spanish class; a couple headed for a vacation in Spain; or a lawyer who needs very specific aspects of the Spanish language to successfully negotiate and consummate a business transaction in Mexico or Latin America. My lesson plans are specifically geared to meet the needs of the student, and include hands-on instruction as well as reading and (critically) listening assignments such as radio and television.
I have a J.D. from UC Berkeley and B.A. from UCSD, where I will be enrolling shortly (extension) to obtain my certificate in professional translation/interpreting in Spanish and English.
I love literature and read profusely in both languages. I am an active cyclist and surfer, and travel to the Pyrenees to road cycle once a year, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. Cheers and I look forward to working with you!
