Bio
Isabel, known to students as Isa, started her international experience when studied abroad as a high school student in Davenport, Iowa. In college, she had the opportunity to study indigenous cultures in Paraguay. As part of her Masters Studies in International Studies, she has traveled extensively throughout Latin America to participate in conferences. In her free time she participates in volunteer activities with immigrants, she enjoys cooking and spending time with her friends. She also loved discovering new places within Santiago, and her favorite place to travel outside the city is Chiloé, an archipelago in the South of Chile, known for its warm people and colorful legends.

Isa loves to share with students from going out to coffee to discussing politics and current events. She is always willing to help you with your class work.

We’re located one block from Line 1 of the Metro and the Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center, and two blocks from the Andres Bello campus of the Universidad de Chile, where the old office was located.
