¡Hola! My name is Maricarmen and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Guanajuato, Mexico. I have an undergraduate degree in teaching Spanish as a Second Language from the University of Guanajuato, where I also did graduate work in education. In addition, I have a certification to teach English.

I have been a Spanish teacher since 2015 and have taught mostly adults, from university age up. Most of my students have been from the US, Europe, or Asia. Besides general Spanish, I can also teach test preparation (DELE).

In addition to teaching, I love creative writing, painting, and short stories.
