Since 2007 I have operated my own language studio, LinguaCom, providing translation and tutoring services to clients internationally. I have 15 years of experience as a translator and private tutor. Currently I also teach in two academic colleges in Jerusalem. Before I started my own business, I had worked with other service providers, translated and edited academic materials from scratch to publication, and taught English in various settings, both private and public. I hold an MA in Special Education from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a BA in Psychology as well as a BA in Culture and Language Studies (English, French). I have a certificate in Technical Writing. I am a passionate traveler and language learner.
