I'm a Certified Interpreter in French (along with Romanian, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese) by the Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.
Since middle school I loved foreign languages which proved to be very rewarding starting with high school when traveling around the world with shooting competitions.
Visiting France and other French speaking countries on three continents allowed me the affinity of learning different accents and slangs of the same language.

Learning any foreign language opens doors in life whether on personal or professional level, and I sincerely believe that anybody can learn anything disregarding their age; in fact, I have friends who late in life decided to learn foreign languages or various skills that they always wanted to learn, so, I encourage you to do the same.

Group students are welcome at a special rate.

About Isabela M.

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my oldest
and wisest student, Dr Robert Brown (a retired physician), has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is and how grateful I am to learn from him, too. For instance, about a famous language called "Esperanto", a language created in the late 19th century.

I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

First Lesson with Isabela to reintroduce myself to a foreign language which I had learned so many years ago. What a fun first lesson.

Isabela's presentation was logical. She teaches in a manner which helps the student both understand and remember words and phrases. She is very effective in this regard. Also, from one who really doesn't enjoy learning languages, Isabela makes the exercise somewhat fun. The student will be lucky to have Isabela as their teacher!

She actually makes learning a language fun - this from someone (57 years old) who has been terrified of languages my whole life. If you want to learn the Romanian language, Isabella will make your learning effort, oh so much easier, and enjoyable. :)

Isabela, made this session very relaxed. Which is perfect, because on the first day of any class, I am always anxious. No matter your age I believe you would be able to mesh very well with Isabela.

This week's lesson was great! Since my family's trip to Italy is rapidly approaching, Isabela had lots of tips and recommendations for me, that I am sure will prove very useful. After all of the work we have done in the last few months, Isabela is really helping me to be more inventive with my new vocabulary, in preparation for my up coming trip. I am feeling better and better about my ability to communicate with the locals. I can't wait for next week's lesson.

Isabela is great. As a student, I was challenged by this first lesson. She used great tools for the lesson such as cotton balls and q-tips.

The Coast Guard is the principal Federal agency responsible for maritime safety, security, and environmental stewardship in U.S. ports and waterways. In this capacity, the Coast Guard protects and defends more than 100,000 miles of U.S. coastline and inland waterways, and safeguards an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) encompassing 4.5 million square miles stretching from North of the Arctic Circle to South of the equator, from Puerto Rico to Guam, encompassing nine time zones – the largest EEZ in the world. As one of the five Armed Services of the United States, the Coast Guard is the only military branch within the Department of Homeland Security. In addition to its role as an Armed Service, the Coast Guard is a first responder and humanitarian service that provides aid to people in distress or impacted by natural and man-made disasters whether at sea or ashore. The Coast Guard is a member of the Intelligence Community, and is a law enforcement and regulatory agency with broad legal authorities associated with maritime transportation, hazardous materials shipping, bridge administration, oil spill response, pilotage, and vessel construction and operation.
