Detailed Profile in English

About me

My name is Mary Allegra. I was born in Valencia, Venezuela.

I am a university professor in the third largest city in my country, Valencia. Although, I can teach the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing, my specialty is English and Spanish Pronunciation.

Qualifications & Experience

I have been teaching English and Spanish for 23 years.

I hold a Master in Applied Linguistics and a Specialization in Teaching Foreign Languages (TFL) from the University Simon Bolivar. I am academically prepared to teach languages (English and Spanish). I am the Chair of English Phonetics and Phonology at the University of Carabobo and an Associate Professor teaching English Phonetics, Phonology and English Language Skills on a graduate program at the University of Carabobo.

I am the co-author of the book “Pronunciation Book One” for the series American English Course. Currently, I am writing a new book on English Phonetics and Phonology.

Teaching Approach

I teach using an eclectic language learning approach that includes the Communicative Language Teaching approach, Task-based approach, Lexical approach and Total Physical Response approach. As a result, the cognitive, affective and linguistic aspects of language learning are taken into consideration during the learning process.

My classes are based on the learner's needs and the evaluation of the course is adapted to the number of classes and the student's availability.

Maria is extremely good. Obviously you can see she is extremely well qualified with extensive experience. She was very adaptable and flexible she is. I wanted conversational practice rather than formal lessons and she did this brilliantly
