Detailed Profile in English

About me

After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in 2007 from an American University, I pursued my professional teaching career as a Spanish and English foreign language teacher. As a Tefl qualified teacher, I have taught students from all over the world, of all ages, both online and in private school institutions.

My teaching philosophy is patience, guidance, encouragement, and respect are the ways to achieve academic success. As an educator, my goal is to ensure that every student has a learning environment where they feel optimistic, enthusiastic and supported. Also, I believe in keeping each tutoring session professional and confidential with mutual respect and collaboration between tutor and the student. I am also willing to be flexible in changing my lessons plans to meet the specific academic needs of the student.

Having taught for over 10 years to students of all ages and backgrounds both inside and out of the classroom, I believe I have the knowledge, skills, and experience to help my future students achieve their academic goals and excel far beyond the classroom.

Lastly, when I am not teaching I enjoy traveling the world, reading, painting and creating music in my virtual studio.
