I have a degree in Pedagogy from the UCM (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) at the Educational Faculty. I’m certified by the Instituto Cervantes as an SSL teacher and DELE Examiner.
I was working as a mentor for primary and secondary students at different museums in Madrid, such as Mº del Prado, Mº Thyssen, Mº Reina Sofía, Mº Nacional de Historia, and Mº Nacional de Ciencias.
I then switched to Spanish as a Second Language, working in various schools in Tenerife. In 2017, I finally found my place at FUIA. Here I feel happy and here is where I found my new family.
I absolutely love electronic music! When I was living in Madrid I worked as a DJ on weekends. I performed in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Granada, Zaragoza, Leon, etc. Since I was 14 years old, I’ve created my own electronic music in my home studio. For more than twenty years I’ve been learning everything I know until I reached advanced knowledge of music production. This has led me to create two PODCASTS “Hablemos Español – 24 levels” and Fairy Tales in Spanish.
