About me

I am an enthusiastic, positive and cheerful person. I enjoy meeting up with friends and traveling, as well as meeting people from different cultures. I have been teaching Spanish and English as a foreign language for over 12 years at private and university level. I find it interesting to share a bit of my culture with those who are interested in the study of Spanish.

Qualifications & Experience


I've been an English teacher in several universities in Colombia. I have also taught courses in linguistics and teaching methodologies. I have been a Spanish instructor in and outside Colombia. I've also taught Peninsular and Latin American film.

Teaching Approach

An important part of learning and improving communication skills, in any language, is to be able to practice and correctly apply the rules that always govern that learning in a contextualised way. My approach is based on the development of strategies that allow the student to advance in their learning process first at the oral level, trying to make him or her to take risks to express themselves in the target language. This will be accompanied by readings and audio material that will be discussed in each class session.

Regarding the written part, the student will have a series of small tasks to complete in order to strengthen this ability.

In my classes I try to be flexible and adjust the course to the needs of the student. So if all you want is to talk, or improve grammar, or just have a better writing and pronunciation, I can focus on the aspect that most interests the student to meet that need.

About me

Soy una persona entusiasta, positiva y alegre. Disfruto compartir con amigos y salir de viaje así como conocer personas de diferentes culturas. Llevo más de 12 años enseñando español e inglés como lengua extranjera a nivel privado y en la universidad. Encuentro interesante poder compartir un poco de mi cultura con quienes se interesen por el estudio del español.

Qualifications & Experience


Me he desempeñado como profesora de inglés en varias universidades en Colombia. He estado a cargo de cursos no son de inglés general sino también de lingüística y metodología de la enseñanza de lenguas extranjeras.

He sido profesora de español como lengua extranjera dentro y fuera de Colombia

También he sido profesora de cine latinoamericano y peninsular

Teaching Approach

Una parte importante del aprendizaje y mejoramiento de las habilidades comunicativas en cualquier idioma, es el poder practicar y aplicar correctamente las reglas que lo rigen siempre de manera contextualizada. Mi enfoque se basa en el desarrollo de estrategias que le permitan al estudiante ir avanzando en su proceso de aprendizaje primero a nivel oral intentando que sea él o ella quien se arriesgue a expresarse en el idioma meta. Esto va a acompañado de lecturas y material en audio que será discutido en cada sesión de clase.

En cuanto a la parte escrita, el estudiante tendrá una serie de tareas pequeñas para completar de manera que vaya afianzando esta habilidad.

En mis clases trato de ser flexible y ajustar el curso a las necesidades del estudiante. Así que si lo único que se quiere es hablar, o mejorar la gramática, o simplemente tener una mejor escritura y pronunciación, puedo enfocándome en el aspecto que más le interese al alumno para cubrir esa necesidad.

I had something come up and so my wife took the lesson in my place. She said that Sandra was great! Very helpful and exactly what she needed to progress in her Spanish. Thanks to Sandra and we will both be taking lessons from her in the future.
