I earned my degree in Hispanic Philology, and a diploma of advanced studies in Classical Tradition and Hispanic-American Literary Modernity from the University of Malaga. In addition I have a master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language (UNED) and a postgraduate degree in Literature and the Publishing Market (CSIC).
During my time working abroad I was a language assistant at Ca’Foscari University in Venice, the Spanish area coordinator of the romance language department of Novi Sad University in Serbia, professor and examiner at the Cervantes Institute in Belgrade, and visiting professor at the University of Zagreb, in addition to other institutes of higher education.
In Spain I have taught language and literature in the public secundary education system in Ibiza, and Spanish as a second language in various language centres throughout Malaga and Madrid. I have taught courses and educational training workshops for teachers of Spanish as a foreign language at universities, official language schools and Cervantes institutes around the world.
I occasionally participate in the creation and editing of materials used in teaching Spanish as a foreign language, I am a Spanish language examiner for the International Baccalaureate Organization and I collaborate with the University of Malaga on the Official Master’s in Management of Spanish Literary Heritage and Linguistics.
I am currently the academic director of La Playa Escuela de Español.
