I have lived for 7 years in Latin America and visited most countries from Mexico to Argentina.
I lived for 28 years in Sweden. I am not only multilingual, but multicultural. My lessons are primarily conversational, involving role-playing, music, story telling, geography, culinary arts, head math and a lot of humor.
I have taught in kindergarten thru college situations, homeschooled kids and adults.
I've been teaching since 1985 (in Sweden), and in Maine since moving here in 2000. I have had hundreds of students of all ages...who have received a valuable exposure to foreign languages and cultures from a person who has been there and done that.

More Spoken and Written Spanish
At EAFIT (Escuela de Administracion y Finanzas) in Medellin, Colombia , I helped found a business research center, conducting scores of academic and market surveys in Spanish. Our goal was to find domestic companies with the capacity and know-how to replace imported goods with Colombian-made products, thusly improving Colombia’s balance of payments. I conducted surveys and published articles in business and research journals in Spanish.
Spanish Language Study
I completed a 6 week total immersion program (Peace Corps: eight-hour days) at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA. It included courses in Latin American history, culture and geography - in preparation for Peace Corps.
I have been fluent in Spanish since 1968, living and teaching for 4 years in Medellin, Colombia. And I have traveled extensively in Central and South America, in the Caribbean in Spain and most of Europe..
