I recently moved back from Europe, having lived there for the past 20+ years and working with the United Nations. I am fluent in Italian, French and Portuguese and am bilingual Spanish-English (I am both Spanish and Dominican). I used all of these languages in my work for many years.
I am now teaching at Newton public schools, and at various academic institutions, at university level.
I absolutely love to communicate with other people in different languages and love to teach children, young adults as well as adults that wish to attain a level of fluency or want to take up a new language altogether. My approach to language lessons is create a bespoke plan for every individual, using the type of media that they most enjoy. Learning a language should be fun!
For adults interested in references, I have excellent references from the heads of the World Language Departments at both Newton North and Newton south public high schools.
