María I

LanguageBird Spanish Instructor

Hello! I am from Argentina. I have traveled, lived and studied in many different places in the Americas (United States, Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Puerto Rico). I studied Literature in Argentina and in the United States. I graduated as a Spanish teacher in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina, and then I did a Master’s and a Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literature at Stony Brook University, SUNY. I worked as a Spanish Teaching Assistant for graduate students for 4 years. I taught Spanish for a year at the Queen Sofia Institute and the Cervantes Institute in New York. I worked for 14 years at the Pontificia Universidade Católica in Rio de Janeiro, teaching Spanish, and I am currently a professor of Spanish and Latin American Literature at the Universidade Federal Fluminense in Rio de Janeiro. I love Latin American and Spanish culture. I have lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, since 2006. I am a cheerful, committed, professional and dynamic teacher. I believe that giving language classes is always an excellent opportunity for personal growth and enrichment.
