- Teaching since:
I'm Ann, and I just recently moved to Los Angeles from Denver, Colorado where I'm originally from.
The past few years have been a whirlwind of experiences that have helped me become the foreign language teacher I am today! In college I studied Spanish and studied abroad in both Ecuador and Spain. After graduating, I moved to Madrid to become a high school/middle school English teacher, and I lived there for two years. Unfortunately, my visa expired so I had to return back to Colorado. I was lucky enough to work at my old high school in Denver as a lead Spanish teacher for levels 2, 3, and 5. After working there for a year, I decided I wanted to do some more traveling. I went back to Ecuador, then Cuba, and then I returned to Spain for 3 months to take a Spanish Teacher Certification course through the Instituto de Cervantes. After traveling for the past 6 months, I've decided it's time to move to Los Angeles!
I like to stay current with popular culture in the States and abroad, and I love listening to Spanish music. While I have mostly lived abroad in Spain, I do my best to stay current with slang and grammar styles from all over the Spanish speaking world. I aim to make my lessons fun, dynamic, and I focus on teaching practical, useful Spanish that you will find in your everyday life.
