I was born in Spain but raised in Ohio. My mother is Spanish and my father American. I was raised with both Spanish and English and can speak them fluently. I have been to around 20 different countries and have traveled alone in recent years. I love visiting new places, experiencing new cultures and learning new languages!
I am passionate about many things but most of all about education. My dream is to one day build a school that provides a high quality education, teaches practical skills and covers subject matters often times ignored. In my free time I enjoy exercising, training in martial arts, doing spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation and practicing guitar.
I have experience teaching English to non-native speakers abroad through participation in a TEFL certification program in Ecuador. I also have taken a course at Ohio University on teacher education which has provided me with supporting material to improve my teaching skills.
I am a native Spanish speaker who has lived and attended school in Spain, both of my parents are Spanish professors and I have a ton of personal experience with different dialects of the Spanish language through my travels in South America.
I have been informing myself about health and fitness since early on in my high school education. I started weightlifting at age 15 and in recent years have been modifying my workout to be a more at home based body weight training program. I have done independent research on proper weightlifting form and on different aspects of exercising and I have also taken a weight lifting course and circuit training course at Ohio University.
I have been exposed to martial arts since early childhood, first with Judo, then with Karate, then Wrestling and now of days with Jiu-Jitsu. Most of my experience lies with Jiu-Jitsu training but I also have experience with weapons training such as the bo staff and nunchaku. I also have done a serious amount of research on different martial arts styles both on my free time and as part of a 10 page paper for a class at Ohio University.
Yoga is something more recent in my life but still of great value and importance. I have recently made my own yoga practice based upon a mix between movements I have seen before and stretches that have been hard for me to incorporate in my daily routine. I have also read books both on Hatha Yoga and The Science of Yoga as well as more eclectic readings on the different types of yoga practices.
In summation, although I am not a professional by the standards of a specific institution I have had a myriad of experiences both locally and abroad that have equipped me with the skills necessary to help increase the knowledge of those around me. If you are passionate about educating yourself and appreciate the value that learning adds to your life, I encourage you to reach out to me and contact me to schedule a lesson. I have much more to offer than what appearances might have you believe! I was born in Spain but raised in Ohio. My mother is Spanish and my father American.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
