Detailed Profile in English

About me

I consider myself to be very competent, energetic and passionate about my job. I see teaching not as a job but as a way of helping others achieve their goals, a way of breaking down barriers people feel when they're not able to understand each other.

I love music, reading, learning and improving everyday in every way possible. I do believe education to be the most important career because it makes us better and more knowledgeable.

Qualifications & Experience

I'm a native Spanish speaker and I have a degree in Education and a degree in Modern Languages. I teach Spanish as well as English, but I'm more experienced in English since I've been teaching it for longer.

I've been teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) for more than 10 years now and consider myself to be very experienced in all levels, from basic to advanced. I've been teaching English the conventional way (in physical classrooms) and recently I've been getting into the Online Teaching part because I think it's just as important if not even more than conventional teaching since you can reach more people that way and teach them.

Teaching Approach

My approach to teaching English starts with Grammar, giving you examples so you can relate to and know how and when to use these structures. I like to get to know you and share my culture as well as yours so you can feel confident that learning a new language is really easy and not as hard as many people think; this way we can blend everyday life experiences with teaching and it makes the best approach I can take. The idea is to understand and reassure you that when expressing your ideas and speaking out your mind there is nothing to fear.

I hope you let me help you whether it's learning a new language from zero or if you already know it but want to improve then I'm the tutor for you. I will give you relevant information and always include fun activities, articles, videos, to help you understand the language in the most natural way you can.
