Hi I'm a professional certified Alberta teacher with years of ESL experience! I'm fluent in SPANISH!

Methodology

Conversation based learning techniques with thematic units that are supported by reading and writing assignments. I won't take up our face to face time with silly exercises that waste time we will get the most of our time together with REAL teaching.

Background

I owned an ESL school in Mexico for many years and have taught many professional adults by creating modules that were specific for their needs with great success! If you are a native Spanish speaker I can teach you even faster as we don't have to look up words as I am fluent in Spanish and can speed up your process to learn English.
