Detailed Profile in English

About me

I am Mariel Olivera. I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and raised in Buenos Aires.

I am a keen traveller who tries to discover the world as much as possible. So far I have been to Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia and England; but this year I am planning to travel all over the Americas, from Argentina to Alaska.

As regards to my interests, I do a lot of research on education, and I am very interested in literature, films, spiritualism, philosophy, vegetarianism, ecology, among other topics.

I volunteered for AFS, where I helped to many travellers who went to Buenos Aires. I have also volunteered for Reevo, Ecologists in ActionI love culture and society differences, and I consider myself very patient and empathetic with cultures that are different from my own.

I have a BA in translation, for which reason I have studied a lot of grammar, phonetics and phonology. I have been teaching Spanish for 4 years already and I really enjoy it.

Teaching Approach

I use the pre-teaching technique, which I use to introduce vocabulary and grammar before working with the corresponding texts and resources. I use an online blackboard during the lesson, through which I introduce the texts, slides, picture, audios or videos that we will use during the lesson. I try to perform the lessons in a way as creative and fun as possible.

I offer individual and group lessons, and they can be regular or intensive. I teach to teenagers and adults of all levels. I also offer conversation lessons.
