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, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and England.
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 Action, Homeless People and Engineers without Borders. I 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 6 years already and I really enjoy it.

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, pictures, flashcards, 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 create many of my resources or take them from other pages, but we won't have just one book to learn, as I create my own material
I like being very customized with my students, so I try to focus on your goals. If you want to travel, let's learn more about that and read travel articles. If you want to use Spanish for work, for moving around a city as an expat, to communicate with your couple... let's focus on that!
Also, I use Google Drive to take notes and you can have your material organized.
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. It's all up to you!
