Hello, I am Maria!
I am an experienced Spanish & Italian teacher who provides language teaching in Weybridge since 2013. I work as well as Substitute Teacher of foreign languages at the prestigious ACS International School in Cobham. I offer private lessons for people from 5 years wanting to learn or improve their command in Spanish or Italian.
I was born in Italy, but I've spent half of my life in Spain. I first went when I was 12 years, and I remain amazed. Therefore, I went back few years later with a scholarship from the European Union, and there I married and formed a family.
I studied a BA in Literature and Foreign Language, which I supplemented with translation and interpretation studies.
Professionally, I have combined my vocation (teaching) with different positions in private companies.
In the first case, I have been teaching elementary and secondary education in Spain and in Italy and I have taught Spanish and Italian to individuals and professionals.
In the business world, I have done a number of translation and interpretation assignments to companies like René Blanche (cosmetics) and Hitachi (electronics), and have worked in Sales and Customer service positions in Bancotel (tourism), CHEP (supply chain) , National (rent a car) and Europ Assistance.
I am a connoisseur of Spanish cultural heritage, to which I dedicated my final year thesis. Whether its people, its architectural treasures, its gastronomy and its way of living life, Spain is the country you will enjoy discovering!!!
