Welcome!

I am a reliable professional with eligibility for a Florida Educator’s Certificate and holding a satisfactory background screening fingerprint (Florida Department of Education) covering world Language-Spanish (grade K-12). And also, I am a journalist and editor with more that 20 years of experience.

I am highly motivated to give private Spanish classes addressed to people who want to learn a second language as a tool of the communication to improve their chances to be successful in their life, careers, or just for fun, traveling to Hispanic countries as a tourist or for abroad purposes.

I obtained my bachelor degree in Communication at the National University of San Marcos in Lima-Peru and my masters in Education, in the United States.

I have experience working with students in public schools. I have been working as a certified rater for few years scoring English writing exams in the USA. Additionally, I am a writer who like to write science fiction short stories. My last published book (Spanish version) is called "El Laberinto de las Dimensiones. Alguien vigila nuestros pensamientos". (The Labyrinth of Dimensions. Someone keeps an eye on our thoughts).
