I am a qualified teacher who graduated with Honours at María Auxiliadora, Perú, where I specialised in Spanish Language and Literature to Secondary and Higher education level.

Before joining Durham University in 2002, I taught students aiming to become Spanish teachers in Perú.

I also taught Spanish as a foreign language in different secondary schools in Newcastle and Sunderland, where I taught GCSE, A and AS levels to both young and adult students.

I was a Visiting Lecturer in Newcastle and Sunderland Universities, teaching Spanish to post A-level.

In total I have accumulated more than 16 years experience of teaching Spanish.
