Who am I?

I started to give Spanish classes by accident, I was working in the south of Spain. Some of my English clients, who were retired, would ask me to help them with their Spanish. I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided that was what I wanted to do. 11 years have passed since then and I haven´t stopped; I am always gaining more qualifications and trying to become a better teacher. I have been working at TANDEM Madrid since 2008 and, although I have worked in various language schools in Spain and abroad, I feel at home here. The best thing about my job? It´s the feeling of butterflies in my stomach on the first day of a new course, like the very first time. And, of course the contact with students from all over the world of all ages and backgrounds, I love it!
