PERSONAL PROFILE

BACKGROUND

I was born in Mexico City in 1978. I graduated from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. I studied at Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Spanish Language and Hispanic Literature. I studied a Diploma course Spanish Language Teaching at CEPE (Centro de enseñanza para extranjeros) at UNAM.

I live in Mexico City. Since I was a student at Junior High I had a very strong interest in three subjects: History, Spanish and Literature. Therefore, when the time arrived to decide which major to choose for college it was a natural choice , I chose Language and Hispanic Literature , I was in love ( and still am ) with spanish language and wanted t read everything that was written about it.

My first experience as a teacher was in an Elementary School in Mexico City (2002). I worked there for 2 years as a Spanish teacher for native speakers. Afterward, I went to France (2004) to work as an assistant in a Spanish course in an elementary School and high School. This was my first time working with foreign students. I taught in France for seven months.

In 2005, I returned to Mexico. In 2006, I worked at UNAM in CEPE, at the campus Taxco. In this center I was able to learn, practice, and teach all the courses of the Spanish curriculum. The following year, I integrated into CEPE Polanco. I stayed at this institution, wich specialized in foreign students for seven years. During this time, I taught in all 8 levels that the school offers. I had student ranged from beginners to advanced. I taught extra courses like conversation, listening, speaking, reading and grammar. At the same time, I provided private classes. Both experience provided me the opportunity to know students from different countries and speakers of various languages. This has enriched me as a linguist and teacher.

In 2013, I started to collaborate with CENEVAL (the most important educational evaluation center in Mexico). I check and verify the high school entrance exams are well prepared. The last two years I have primarily worked as a private Spanish tutor.
