As a Spanish native from Madrid, Spain, I am fluent in Spanish as well as in English, French, and Italian.

Languages have always been my passion, so I studied a bachelor of arts in translation and interpreting in Spanish, English, and French. During my degree I started tutoring private Spanish and English lessons, and it was when I discovered that my passion was not just for learning new languages but also for teaching them.

Next, I obtained my master's in conference interpreting; however, I kept tutoring Spanish and English, then adding French, too. During several summers I've worked in international language summer camps with teenagers in England and France.

I've traveled throughout Europe, Asia and North America, and I’ve been living in France and Italy, where I also taught Spanish as a private teacher.

My husband (who is American) and I met in Spain. He had a job opportunity to be back in the US, so we moved here in November 2011. Since then I've been tutoring students of all ages and levels in the Lehigh Valley area. I also have experience as Spanish teacher at a private school teaching 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders.

Regardless of your level or your needs, I'm looking forward to teaching children or adults my native language but also to share the culture from Spain. Whether you prefer focusing on conversational, grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing or comprehension aspects, you will enjoy learning the authentic Spanish language as well as learning about the dynamic lifestyle of Spain.

As a fluent French speaker and translator, I will also provide French lessons to motivated students seeking to learn or improve their French.

Looking forward to helping you to become a fluent speaker in Spanish or French!
