I earned a MA degree in Spanish Language and Literature.

I have taught at SF State University, the University of Notre Dame de Namur in Belmont and Skyline College.

I lived in Mexico for an extensive period and understand the difficulties an English speaker might have learning to read, write and speak Spanish. I am able to assist the student to overcome Spanish language learning difficulties from pronunciation, grammatical and cultural differences.

Language learning is not difficult. It is the intuitive instructor who is able to inspire and teach the student.

Enjoy the benefits of being bilingual. Your life can truly change by opening new doors by being able to speak more than one language!
