About me

Professional teacher of English and Spanish as foreign language.

“Passionate, creative and resourceful professional educator with a solid teaching career.”

I am a highly experienced Teacher of Spanish and English a Foreign Languages. I have a bachelor's degree as a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language from “Joaquín V. González” Teacher Training College, one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Latin America. Furthermore, I have earned a master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires. At the moment, I am finishing a postgraduate degree in Storytelling.

I have over 20 years of working experience at state schools, companies, language schools and the University of Buenos Aires. I have taught students from different nationalities, ages and levels. I design traditional and on-line training courses both in English and Spanish as foreign languages (international exams, regular and intensive courses, language for specific purposes, conversation and accent reduction courses).

One of my main interests is teaching through games and art. I also coordinate storytelling, puppet and object theatre workshops.

Teaching Approach

The teaching methodology is selected according to the students' learning goals and their needs. I mainly work within a communicative, task-based approach, which gives greater importance to interaction as a means and final objective in the learning process of a foreign language. I also focus on improving the students' oral and written production, as well as their reading and listening comprehension. The different students' learning profiles are taken into account in the lesson planning and the activities to be carried out in class.

The lessons include a great variety of teaching materials, both for traditional and online teaching (textbooks, audio files, videos, songs, short stories, games and online exercises, news articles, comics, etc.). The material can be authentic or adapted to the student's level. The good quality and variety of the teaching material makes the lessons more entertaining and really effective.
