Hi, I’m Amanda!
I’m a woman from the United States who knows what it’s like to want to be part of a community. Sé que no es fácil integrarte en una nueva comunidad, ni si sea de lejos ni si estás en el mismo vecindario.
I’ve felt confused and left out as people around me talked to each other and I didn’t understand. He aprendido español desde el principio, así que he experimentado la confusión y las dificultades de entender y conectar con otras personas. Te aseguro que te voy a entender y no tienes que tener miedo que no vas a poder entenderme.
I’ve moved to a new place and experienced the difficulty of making new friends as an adult. Me he dado cuenta que hacer amigos requiere trabajo y muchas veces, no es fácil saber cómo meterte en los círculos sociales de manera auténtica.
I’ve struggled with cultural misunderstandings as I worked in international teams. Llevo años de experiencia en comunicar en una manera que permite que el mensaje sea claro para todos.
So I see you. I understand you.
I know you value relationships. You know how important it is to understand people and for them to understand you.
I know you feel nervous and unsure of yourself when you have to talk with others in English.
I know you have big ideas and hopes for the future. You want to belong to a new community, maybe in a new country! You want a new, better job. You want to be confident when you communicate.
I’m ready to help you achieve your goals and dreams!
I have 3 years of experience teaching English and working with people just like you.
I’ve learned to speak Spanish fluently, so I know exactly what might be difficult for you in English–probably the same things I struggled with in Spanish!
I’ve worked with individuals as they improved their English by several levels, got a new job, or finally felt at home in their new city in the U.S.
