About Me

I have successfully helped hundreds of adults and children to learn, especially their second language. I graduated with a BA in Spanish Literature from the University of California Los Angeles, including a year at the University of Madrid, an MA in Education from Cal State Long Beach, and have credentials in bilingual, English and Spanish education. For more than thirty years, I taught in classrooms, but now I concentrate my efforts on online teaching. I enjoy working face-to-face with students over Skype and sharing my excitement for learning languages.
