My name is Erika Hoffman Garcia and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish. I grew up mostly in Latin America living in Costa Rica, Chile, Panama amongst visiting countries such as Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Nicaragua, and Spain. If you want help on your Spanish homework, need someone to quiz you, converse with you etc. or need assistance in reading, writing and speaking the language I'm here to help! I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can definitely do that! Cheers to learning a new language!
The Workers Union partnered with UCLA theatre program to create a dramatized narrative that was put up in front of an audience. I was hired to translate the narrative and then simultaneously speak it into a microphone so those in the audience who only spoke Spanish could hear the translation of what the "characters" were saying.+ Read More
