My name is Valeria Ramírez, I am Mexican, Spanish and English teacher and translator. I have lived in Brazil for 14 years, I am an Engineering graduate, when I finished my degree I went to do an ESL (English as Second Language) course in Toronto, Canada, there I also took a preparation course to do a test named TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). When I arrived in Brazil in 2006 my first job was as an English teacher at a language school in the Tatuapé neighborhood in Sao Paulo. Throughout my professional career I have given group and private Spanish and English classes, I have done translation jobs from Spanish to Portuguese, Portuguese to English and English to Spanish. Besides working with language classes and translations, I am a commercial representative for an American brand that manufactures medical devices.
