I was born in Colombia and moved to the United States at a young age where I grew up in a Spanish-speaking household. I attended Spanish classes every Saturday to master my grammar, orthography, and pronunciation. By the time I got to high school, I had learned virtually all I could, so I took four semesters of French instead.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with University Honors, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in French, German, and International Studies. As an undergraduate student, I spent two semesters abroad-- one in Lyon, France and one in Berlin, Germany, where I developed my language competencies.

Upon return, I was accepted into an Early Entry graduate program, which I completed in Translating in Spanish, French, and German.

During my graduate studies, I was recruited as a bilingual data consultant for Wells Fargo, where I contribute Spanish translation, guidance, and quality control to develop artificial intelligence through natural language processing.

On the side, I also work as a Spanish interpreter for two regional language service agencies, facilitating communication between Spanish speakers and medical providers, community staff, and law enforcement officials to ensure mutual understanding, cultural sensitivity, and confidentiality.

You'll notice the subjects I tutor are primarily foreign language related, since those are my areas of expertise in terms of education, experience, and passion.

Prior to joining Varsity Tutors, I tutored children ages 3-5 to develop basic French vocabulary and sentence structure.

I believe all students have natural gifts and aptitudes as well as curiosity. As a tutor, I feel it is my duty to help them identify their natural talents and nurture their love of learning, so that they learn the joy of it instead of viewing it as a chore.

In my spare time, I enjoy a variety of leisure activities, like reading, playing sports, and traveling.
