I was born in Uruguay, but at an early age my family and I moved to Sydney, Australia - where I lived for almost 20 years. Living another culture was for me a highly enriching experience.
On my arrival back to Uruguay, I decided to do the TESOL (Teacher of English as a Second Language) course, graduating with top marks. I have now been a teacher for 15 years.
What has been most rewarding,has been the possiblity of teaching students of all ages (from children to adults) and levels, including the preparation of International Exams. I also teach E.S.P ( English for Specific Purposes) in different multinational companies and also to those working in the hotel, restaurant and tourism industry.
Being an official Tourist Guide - another love of mine - has enabled me not only to provide interpreting services, but also to show my country to the world and exchange cultural knowledge with our visitors.
I started translating and proof-reading varied texts years ago for acquaintances and enjoyed it so much so that I have taken it up as a nother job opportunity - working freelance from home.
