I am currently a member of the European String Teachers’ Association, and have participated in ESTA conferences across Europe. I also regularly accompany students on the piano, and work on music theory, aural and sight reading skills for exams, including on grades in theory and academic exams across all stages. As a performing musician, I’ve played as a soloist in venues across Europe and participated in several international competitions. I was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra, and a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2014-2015, appearing on BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and a televised BBC Prom, as well as being involved in the NYO outreach programme ‘inspire’ in schools across London, including workshops and interactive performances at the Royal Festival Hall.

During these past years, I have analyzed in depth Anglo-Saxon literature in UCD, Ireland, surrounded by native English speakers and examined as such.

Spanish (all levels) and English (A1-B2) as second languages
I specialize in teaching Spanish and English as a second language. I completely adapt the course to your priorities. We focus on the skills and vocabulary that are relevant to you. For example, if you want to learn Spanish because you are going on vacations, the course will look very different from that of a person looking to learn Spanish for business purposes. Me especializo en la enseñanza de los idiomas español e inglés como segundas lenguas. Las clases se adaptan a tus necesidades, nos enfocamos en las habilidades y el vocabulario que son importantes para ti. Por ejemplo, si quieres aprender inglés porque vas a ir de vacaciones, tu curso sería completamente diferente al curso de alguien que desea aprender inglés por razones de negocios.
