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. 

My teaching journey started with close friends who wanted to learn Spanish for traveling and for their real estate business.  In 2020 I joined a Spanish Institute from San Francisco, teaching Spanish Online. Now I can say that I have found a new passion in teaching Spanish!  In March 2022, I completed a University Course Specialization 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.
