Teaches students:
Ages 18+

Teaching since:
June 2011

I have dual nationality (American and Colombian). I was born and raised in Colombia, and then I moved with my family to the United States when I was 18 years old. I went to college in Florida where I obtained a bachelor's degree in psychology. I am fluent in both English and Spanish.

Now I am back in Colombia teaching English and Spanish in a language institute in my hometown Cartagena. I have been teaching here for six years already.

I am laid-back, easygoing and outgoing. I like to play the guitar, sing and compose songs too. I love teaching and being able to help my students to understand new concepts easily.

Feel free to contact me if you are coming to visit my hometown, Cartagena and practice your Spanish. I will be glad to show you around.
