She speaks these languages:
I received a degree in English Studies and I also hold two Master’s, one in Translation, Subtitling and Dubbing and the other one in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I have great experience in the field of education language. I started collaborating as Spanish instructor for the University of East Anglia (Norwich, UK) and, when I returned to Spain I worked as English tutor in Madrid. Three years later, I worked as a Spanish teacher in Madrid for several years. After this, I started my own online academy and now, I am Head of Online Spanish at FU International Academy Tenerife.
I received a Specialized Spanish Teacher certification by International House Madrid. In addition, I have attained the Qualified English Status (QTS), meeting the requirements for employment in schools in England.
I would like to highlight my work experience in the world of the cinema. I was working as an audio description writer, writing scripts for theatre and films, making movies and theatre plays accessible to blind and visually impaired persons.

Hacer una prueba de doblaje. Tuve que doblar a Marge Simpson en una escena romántica con Homer.
English: What was your most embarrassing moment? Do a dubbing test. I had to dub Marge Simpson in a romantic scene with Homer.
Yo siempre veía Caperucita Roja. Ahora me doy cuenta de que yo también he pecado mucho de curiosa y de inocente. Siempre estoy de aquí para allá, me aburre seguir un solo camino.
English: What was your favorite cartoon series?I always used to watch Little Red Riding Hood. Now I realize that I too have sinned much of curiosity and innocence. I’m always going back and forth; it bores me to follow only one path.
