I have been interested in languages and linguistics since I was a young child. Unfortunately, I did not grow up in a multilingual home. But as soon as I had the opportunity to learn languages in school, I dove right in. I have been doing that ever since.
I'm a native English speaker, I am fluent in Spanish, and also learning Italian and Chinese. I want to learn them all! I conduct research with the Mayan languages surrounding Lake Atitlan in Guatemala: K'iche, Tz'utujil, and Kaqchikel.
I've also tutored ESL and Spanish for many years, and have even taught college English, ESL, and high school Spanish. I love teaching and I love helping others. The language learning process seems daunting but people do it every day, and so can you.
What are your language learning dreams? What/who are your inspirations? When broken down, the process is easier than you think. I want people to achieve their goals and be successful. So please reach out by sending me a message or email so that I can point you in the right direction!
