Two New Teachers Join the Esperanza Education Team
We are very excited to welcome two new teachers to the Esperanza Education team of collaborators. Kathryn Stewart will be offering English support for all ages and interests, including test preparation, and Martín Urrutia Varese will be offering Spanish language lessons, English-Spanish translation, and creative writing support.
Kathryn is originally from Vancouver. She is a certified English teacher and has a Bachelor of Education with a focus on Social Studies and English as an Additional Language. She has worked at a Canadian school in Indonesia, and has taught English in Canada, Australia, and Turkey. Her combination of training and experience as both a high school teacher and an English teacher for adults makes her uniquely qualified to work with English learners of all ages. With Esperanza Education, she will focus on supporting children and adolescents learning English, English for business purposes, academic writing, and preparation for standardized tests such as the IELTS, TOFEL, FCE and CAE.
