About Isabel

My interest in languages started when I was young. My mother is from Mexico and I grew up speaking Spanish and English in San Francisco. While staying with relatives in Mexico, I learned all about Mexican culture. I have both a Master of Public Administration degree and a B.A. Degree in Spanish, Cum Laude Honors. As an undergraduate student, I spent a year studying Spanish at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain. In addition, I studied Spanish, art and dance for three months in Guadalajara, Mexico.

I have experience in tutoring high school students and adults. I have worked at the Council of Europe (a human rights organization) in Strasbourg, France, where I used French and translated Spanish. I also studied French for a year at the University of Strasbourg, including performing plays in French. Before that I worked for two years at a United Nations agency in Rome, Italy where I used Italian and Spanish.

Now I enjoy returning often to visit Mexico and Europe. I have always had a passion for languages and for teaching languages through conversation, comprehension, reading, listening and speaking. I can help you develop and improve your language skills for vacation trips, business travel or school. You will learn how to expertly communicate in another language – whether in Spanish, French, Italian or English.

Great tutor for a beginner like me

Isabel was my Spanish tutor for about an year. At that point of time I didn't have any experience with Spanish and now I can tell that after an year I made an amazing progress - thanks to Isabel. She is very flexible and was able to arrange classes for me at the time that was convenient for me. She not only taught me Spanish but help me to understand Spanish culture better. It helped me a lot dur
