Hi, my name is Liliana Vázquez Villagrán and I am a graduate student in the Human and Development Counseling program at UIS.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with a concentration in Education, from the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana in Mexico City (UAM-X).  For the past 10 years, I have taught English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to children, adolescents, adults, and senior citizens in Mexico City.  I am very excited for the opportunity to work at the Learning Hub because this position will allow me to put into practice my passion for teaching. I can assure you that I will do my best to help you succeed in your academic goals.
