``I'm a bit of a geek and I love scientific advances, even though these are sometimes beyond my comprehension. Knowledge in general is my passion.
I consider myself ambitious and in the future I would love to create my own projects and manage my own team. Visiting new countries is the cure for intolerance and ignorance``.
``I do my administrative work from the reception desk and I really like being able to interact with the students and help them with whatever they need``.
She enjoys reading, listening to music, dancing, walking and enjoying every moment of the day with the best of her smiles.
Another of his passions is art and culture in general. In his spare time he likes to swim, paint, play the violin, travel, go out with his friends, cultural activities of all kinds, read, enjoy the city, nature and the sea, and get to know other languages and their cultures.
``Madrid is a very diverse city, there are many people with whom to practice Spanish, and the inhabitants are very welcoming, they interact easily. We have great weather, a rich gastronomy, a broad cultural offer, large urban parks, and the nature and mountains close. The nightlife here is incredible, you can go out every day! What more reasons do you need to come? ``
Her long experience as a teacher has allowed her to know different educational, academic and cultural environments and all of this has made her see that the development of a lifetime in the field of teaching Spanish is, without a doubt, her vocation.
``I discovered this vocation many years ago, when I left for France as a language assistant, after graduating in French philology. That's where my interest in teaching Spanish was aroused, and since then my passion has been teaching Spanish to foreigners, and where better than in Madrid, in the Puerta del Sol? Come and meet us, we are going to surprise you``.
Traveling, closely experiencing the cultures of other countries, and learning their languages has always been a source of inspiration for him, both personally and when it comes to understanding the learning and teaching of languages.
“If reading, history and art are my favorite hobbies, it is no less a good conversation about the day to day, about life, about us. Now back in Madrid, I'm waiting for you here, at NLC, to share with you my enthusiasm and everything I've learned in this time. And of course also to learn from you!``
The Spanish language has always been her favourite subject, from an early age. She has given private classes to Spanish kids on weekends while studying at ESCUNI, not only of language studies, also of all subjects. But it was the fact of giving classes to foreign children with school failure due to lack of knowledge of the language that reaffirmed her vocation: to be communicator.
She has many hobbies: she likes travelling and getting to know other cultures, reading (poetry, philosophy, history...), going to the cinema and theatre, swimming, dancing, wine tasting, national and international gastronomy, flamenco and a large etcetera.
``I believe that teaching Spanish to foreigners is a continuous exchange of cultural experiences, very enriching for everyone``.
Since 2006 he lives in Madrid. He has a degree in Accounting and Sales Management. ``Since the 0th day in Madrid I have fallen in love with this cosmopolitan and beautiful city that always welcomes you with open arms``. He loves to meet people, other cultures, make friends of other nationalities and most of all learn and share experiences.
``I will be available and willing to help you as much as possible in your new life in Madrid, from the team of advisors we know how difficult it is to start in a new culture, I will give you all my support``.

She loves languages and travel. She has travelled through different European countries (Italy, England, Spain...) but also, to Toronto, in Canada to study English and visit a few years later the city of Winnipeg.
Two years ago, she completed her studies in Spain as part of her degree in international trade, at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Ciudad Real, where she studied marketing and international trade management.
``My experience here at NLCollege allowed me to learn more about Spanish culture and more particularly about Madrid culture. I am convinced that there is no better place than NLCollege to learn, both for its location and for its teaching. And it is a pleasure for me to be able to contribute to their integration and to the smooth running of this experience``.

Before arriving in Spain, she lived more than 3 years in Ireland and has travelled through Latin America, Europe and Africa. ``To live the everyday, to share a chat, a meal and to let myself be carried by the things the day proposes are my favourite situations when I travel.
