Detailed Profile in English

About me

I have a great Spanish neutral accent to help students speak wonderfully.

I am a professional with a B.A in modern languages and a specialist in Virtual Teaching from the University of California and a translator. I have worked for many years as an online language teacher of Spanish and English.

I love watching movies, teaching, learning, listening to music, working out and walking with my dogs.

Qualifications & Experience

Experience:

I have worked from 2006 to 2010 as a Spanish Teacher in England at universities and private classes for English Native speakers (Beginners to Experts) who wanted to improve their Spanish; and in Colombia as an English and Spanish Teacher from 2011 to 2017, at colleges and virtually to Adolescents, Adults and Seniors through platforms such as Blackboard, Moodle and software like Skype, Google Hangouts and Collaborate.

I have online students from the USA, England, Canada, and Australia. I have trained students to take the DELE and ECELE Tests (Spanish) and the TOEFL, IELTS, BULATS, MET; TOEIC (English). I have also worked as a translator from English into Spanish and Spanish into English and as a designer of interactive educational content in HTML5 for universities, companies and personal customers around the world.

I believe that learning a language online is more efficient than in the classroom, due to the different tools that may be used to practice the four skills through interaction and intuition.

Teaching Approach

Due to globalization Spanish has become the second most studied language and second language in international communication.

I know how to acquire a language, it requires special skills. I can help students become fluent in a romance language in less time than it would take someone studying with traditional learning.

I actively research, study and update my knowledge in teaching languages to provide my students new learning experiences and methods in order to help develop a proficient competence in speaking, listening, reading and writing in Spanish or English using real material and interactive activities.

To acquire a language also means to understand the culture of different regions and societies, that’s why I like to teach the idiomatic expressions in the language that is being taught and the contextual vocabulary meaning and usage in specific regions.

My watchword is to “Make my students competitive, to face any language situation in any country where Spanish or English is spoken”.
