About Blanca

While laughter is universal, we need words to communicate! As a bilingual child from Spanish-speaking ancestry, I often asked myself, " why doesn't everyone speak another language, dream in one, see the world in more than one? I had the fortunate opportunity to learn a third language, Italian, when as a university student, attending a year abroad, I met my future husband and stayed in Italy to raise a family and live an Italian life: now that's an education!

My experience teaching English to Italians ranges from children, high school, college age students, to physicians and business professionals. Upon returning to California, I held various jobs, however, teaching language, literature and culture have always best expressed my natural proclivities as a human being: it is the intangible of life, that which we cannot translate, we must, be, that is the distinguishing quality separating bilingual and multilingual teachers from bi-cultural and/or multilingual people.


My life has straddled both sides of the teaching dyad. Spanish is my mother tongue, and I have a B.A. from Stanford University in Spanish and Italian Literature. I am semi retired, able to travel to students. And I look forward to inspiring a passion for better communication globally.
