Descripción

I am an award-winning and experienced educator, teacher trainer and Cambridge examiner who has gained extensive knowledge of all areas related to English language teaching from having taught or lectured in Spain, The Canary Islands, Lithuania, Italy, Ukraine, The Netherlands and England.

I wrote ‘Common Mistakes in English Made by Spanish Speakers’ in 2010 and the book is due for re-release in 2018 under the new title ‘Stop Speaking Spanglish’.

My teaching specialities include official exam preparation and business communications in which I offer an enjoyable, thought-provoking and fulfilling learning experience. I am also a strong advocate for the development, implementation and promotion of educational technology in the classroom.

As well as the qualifications stated within my profile, I have also attended a number of teacher training courses and seminars organised by Macmillan Education, Pearson, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press and the British Council.

I have also gained extensive experience in life coaching, educational and business management, social media marketing and online advertising, communications and journalism.
