My classes are based on students needs and from this, an approach or methodology will be chosen (communicative approach, eclectic approach). We are all different and learn in different ways.

About me

Saludos, Mi nombre es Maira Moreno tengo 39 años, tengo una amplia experiencia en la enseñanza del inglés como lengua extranjera, enseñar es mi pasión. Por ser hablante nativa del español y por la experiencia que poseo estoy capacitada para enseñarlo. Por lo tanto, cada clase de español será una nueva experiencia muy significativa y enriquecedora para el estudiante, ya que podrá satisfacer sus necesidades, intereses y a la vez desarrollar destrezas que lo conviertan en un hablante autónomo del idioma.

Me gusta estar siempre en contacto con otras culturas, conocer nuevas personas, escuchar música, viajar, leer e investigar sobre temas relacionados con actualización educativa (metodologías, planificación, enfoques, estrategias, lenguajes, tecnologías educativas, análisis del discurso, entre otros).

Me considero una persona proactiva, agradable, responsable y muy organizada. Por lo cual, si desea aprender español de una manera dinámica y motivadora no dude en contactarme.

Teaching Approach

Mis clases se basan en los intereses y necesidades de los estudiantes, tomando en cuenta ello se selecciona el método o enfoque a utilizar (enfoque comunicativo, método ecléctico). Sabemos que todos somos distintos, cada persona tiene su individualidad, nadie aprende de la misma manera que otros y cada quien tiene su manera de hacerlo. Es por eso que en cada clase introductoria aplico un examen diagnóstico para detectar el nivel, fortalezas y debilidades que tenga el estudiante, basado en ese examen se planificará cada clase de una manera organizada, motivadora, dinámica y divertida para que el estudiante se sienta participe en el proceso de enseñanza- aprendizaje. La idea es que el estudiante pueda desarrollar destrezas comunicativas, escuchar, leer, escribir y profundizar sobre la gramática y vocabulario del idioma que esta aprendiendo. De igual forma, cada clase será diseñada y personalizada atendiendo al propósito del estudiante.

Si su deseo es aprender Inglés o Español, estaré a sus gratas ordenes y con mucha disposición para ayudarle.

I had a great first lesson with Maira. She is very nice and attentive and we talked about a lot of interesting topics. I definitely feel more confident practicing my Spanish and no longer feel insecure with speaking and listening as I did before. I look forward to the next lesson and advancing in the language. muchas gracias

I really enjoyed my first lesson with Maira. She is very friendly and aims to keep the conversation as fluent in Spanish as possible but is very understanding as I am relatively new to learning the language. The lesson was filled with new content as well as helping cementing words and phrases I have previously learned.

It really is simply astounding that someone who is so qualified, pleasant, competent and engaged is available to teach on this online platform. I have referred my friends to Maira, and they are equally as impressed. My wife and I will continue with Maira as long as she is available. Thank you!!!

I really enjoyed my first session with Maira. She is friendly, professional and is very keen to explore what you want to get out of the classes, to tailor a programme to suit you. She is a great listener and very good at picking up the essence of what would be helpful. As someone whose fluency is very rusty, she put me at ease and I felt comfortable expressing ideas from the beginning. I enjoyed her style and she clearly has strong experience and knowledge of how adults learn well. I'm very much looking forward to my classes with Maira!
