Experienced Language Teacher for Adolescents and University Students with a Master's Degree

Methodology

Most of my classes follow the Communicative Approach where I focus on fluency activities without forgetting the formal aspects of the language. Courses are fun and interactive and tailored for each student's learning needs. I apply teaching principles that assure my students get the best return for their learning effort and that the language information is practical and useful.

Background

I am a Spanish and English teacher with more than 5 years of experience working with children, adolescents and young adults. I have helped many students from different backgrounds improve their language skills and have the confidence to communicate in the target language.
