My name is Violeta Madrigal Jover (Violeta McMaster is my married name), I am Spanish but I have lived in England since 1998.

I have a Bachelor of Education’s degree in English as a Foreign Language.

In Spain I worked at an Academia teaching English as a Second Language for several years. Soon after I moved to England I worked as a Spanish tutor at Selby College, worked at the Howden P.A. as a translator/interpreter, have been a translator for the Spanish Consulate and in the last several years I worked at York Hospital as a Procurement Developer.

But I am going back to my real passion, which is and always has been, teaching and translating.
