A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Journey

I lived in Boston, MA, for 6 years. It was there that I discovered my vocation. Later, I moved back to México and continued as a school teacher. When I arrived to the Netherlands, I decided to go on my own; now I am a registered  freelancer.

Experience

I have professionally taught since 2004. From 2008 to 2016, I worked in a school teaching English, Philosophy for Kids, and Art & Music Appreciation. Since January 2018, I am a registered freelancer in Eindhoven. Nowadays, I specialize in helping Expats learn English, build up their self-confidence, get ready for interviews, and adapt to their new life in Eindhoven. Additionally, I apply a coaching approach to the conversations with my learners, helping them effectively define goals, identify options, and plan the next steps.
