A Canadian raised in Mexico. Full-time Spanish as a second language tutor for people of all ages and experience.

Methodology

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.

Background

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 five 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.

About me: I am a graduate with a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver and hands-on work experience in teaching English as a second language for one summer at CulturLingua. I am passionate about learning and enjoy teaching students, young and old. I grew up in Mexico, and am completely bilingual in English and Spanish.

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
