About the lesson
If I'm working one-on-one, I like to get a sense of the level I'm teaching at based on student's needs. In a group, I find that playing group games and using workbooks with paired exercises is a good way to get everyone practicing together. Assigning Spanish dialogue activities where students have to write their own script and present in front of the class is also an effective way for students to have fun and learn.

Early childhood education
I grew up and went through most of my schooling in Mexico. I'm fluent in English and Spanish, and learned to read and write in Spanish. I have 11 years of bilingual schooling under my belt, and I lived life speaking, reading and writing Spanish every day. My academic background involves an English Literature degree from UBC Vancouver and seven years of work experience as a digital communications specialist. In my roles, I have often been asked to translate technical documents from English to Spanish or Spanish to English.
Perfect! Fun and cheerful teaching style … enjoyable for sure

Perfect! Very knowledgeable ... and makes learning fun! Mikhaila is very friendly and has a knack for encouraging us to work hard while supporting us through our "rough spots". Our sessions with her have been a great way to advance our at-home study and practice.

I found Mikhaila through superprof. She is really friendly and fun to learn with. She customizes lessons to what is relevant for you and works towards goals. She focuses a lot on listening and speaking which is key to learning a new language!
Mikhaila is a splendid tutor! She is great for getting you started and keeping you motivated and striving along. She is patient and thorough in her teachings but most of all she makes learning fun! Having grew up in Mexico; I can guarantee Mikhaila is the right Spanish teacher for you! If you're a shy individual and/or find learning a new language difficult or embarrassing, Mikhaila is friendly, outgoing and will make you feel comfortable and encouraged. 5 stars and thank you
