About me

WHO I AM:

I am an experienced and passionate teacher. Teaching and learning are two one of my passions. I have a website where I give useful tips for students. Check it out at marianogueira.net.

A SAMPLE:

take a look at my presentation video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSQVlpAz5KI&index=64&list=PL18927A7B996BD55F ) to get an idea of my online lessons and they way they work

Qualifications & Experience

I have taught Spanish for 8 years, both as a freelancer and for different schools and institutions. I have a lot of experience in online teaching (via Skype and Google Hangout), which is actually my speciality.

I have a bachelor degree on Spanish Philology (that is Linguistics and Spanish and Latin American Literature), and two masters degrees on Education and on Spanish as a Second Language (ELE). I studied in Madrid, at the University Complutense and University Autónoma.

As part of my job, I also do proofreading write for several blogs and language magazines and publishers and sometimes I do proofreading in Spanish as well. I am very interested in e-learning and that is why I have learnt to use different tools both to manage my classes and to create my own teaching materials.

I SPEAK FLUENT ENGLISH, FRENCH AND PORTUGUESE

Teaching Approach

WHAT I TEACH:

I teach Spanish at all levels and for many different profiles and purposes:

Today we focused on vocabulary related to jobs and we used some questions related to job interviews, which was a good way to talk about professional experience and use the past tenses!

We went through some familiar expressions in Spanish and we talked about some cultural difference between French and Spanish. A very interesting lesson!
