Have you always wanted to learn Spanish but don't know how or where to start? I'll make it fun and interesting.

Methodology

I have a more personalized teaching method. I believe that dedicating my full attention to a particular student is way more beneficial than tutoring a bigger group.

This way, I get to develop a much stronger relationship with the student, which in turn helps him/her learn not only better but quicker.

I also strongly believe in a more 'hands-on' approach. I like to make my lessons as interactive, dynamic and fun as possible. At the end, that's how I learned English myself.

Background

I'm a native Spanish speaker, born and raised in Colombia. Came to Canada in 2015 and have been living in Vancouver for 2 years now.

I'm very passionate about sharing my culture and language to those that are interested. I lived in Montreal for 2 years where I gave lessons to different people.

Apart from being a Spanish tutor, I'm a chef and have a food business. This allows me to have a much more flexible schedule, which can be adjusted to fit your availability.

Maria Alejandra's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
1. When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Maria Alejandra — When I came to Canada as an international student to learn and perfect my English, my teachers were very passionate about what they did and everyone I met was willing to engage in conversation, even though my English wasn't 100% perfect. This inspired me to become a Spanish tutor and offer that same passion for teaching something as valuable as a new language to anyone out there that would be interested in learning it. Because it goes deeper than a language. It's a new culture, new relationships, new experiences, new knowledge and ultimately new beginnings.
QUESTION 02 | 05
2. What makes you passionate about your subject?
Maria Alejandra — The fact that I can share not only my language but also my culture and where I come from with people that welcome and receive the information with a similar passion, but one for learning.
QUESTION 03 | 05
3. What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Maria Alejandra — Something I really like about tutoring is that rewarding feeling of knowing that I helped someone improve their skills or that I cleared out any doubts that they once had. I love helping people.
QUESTION 04 | 05
4. Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Maria Alejandra — Every single person that helped me throughout my English learning journey is an inspiration to me.
QUESTION 05 | 05
5. What are your keys to success?
Maria Alejandra — Resilience, discipline, sacrifice, believing in one self.
