My name is Catalina Pérez,
I am from Medellín, Colombia.

Currently I live in San Francisco, California. I studied International Business and moved to the U.S.A. in 2005 where I completed an M.B.A. and have worked in International Sales and Marketing for multinational companies doing business in Spain and Latin American countries. 

I have been teaching Spanish to friends for the last couple of years and in 2020 I started teaching Spanish Online with a Spanish institute in San Francisco. Now I can say that I have found a new passion in teaching Spanish! I am currently in the process of completing a specialization course for teaching Spanish as a foreign language from Universidad Europea Miguel de Cervantes in Valladolid, Spain.

I also enjoy exploring, cooking and sharing creative Latin American Cuisine.


I deeply believe in integrating the practice of good communication and empathy with different cultures, which is essential to live in harmony with people of all backgrounds.
