LanguageBird Spanish Instructor

Hello! I am from Peru and I am an English<>Spanish translator and interpreter specialized in engineering, particularly mining. My career has allowed me to travel a lot throughout my country, to most mine sites in Peru. Peru is a wonderful place to live, and although I travel abroad from time to time – business or pleasure – I always want to come back. Food here is fantastic, and there are wonderful places to go to. I am also very much into video games and painting, though I know one thing has not much to do with the other, but I have to say they are both my treats, a part of my “me time”. I have also been a professor in several universities in Peru where I have taught technical translation, interpreting, and stylistics. I guess I am a teacher as much as I am a translator, that is why I felt this was a right call for me! My students have always told me I always show up in class with a smile, I think that’s because I love what I do. After all, there is nothing more rewarding for me than being able to help others learn what they want and feel it was partly my doing. I am looking forward to seeing you in class soon!
