I have extensive teaching experience in both corporate and higher education settings in the UK, Spain and the US. In addition, I possess professional experience as a translator and interpreter for legal and business purposes. I have also held managerial responsibilities as curriculum coordinator and team leader. I believe that my strong academic background and my professional experience in the field have allowed me to become familiar with both theoretical concepts and practice-based skills.
