Spanish Teacher in Kitchener, Ontario, with passion for helping students of all ages learn about language.

Methodology

Some of my teaching methods are:

- Incorporated books, games and music into the curriculum
- Planned and organized hands-on activities that encourage active student participation and involvement
- Incorporating cultural and historical components into the curriculum to diversify and expand learning material
- Make virtual field trips to different places where we can do listening exercises and learn new vocabulary

Background

I am an Environmental Engineer with a Master's Degree. Since my children were born, I made the decision to stop my professional career and dedicate myself to them. Being a full-time mother was the motivation to create my personalized book company in Colombia (my hometown) that has been operating since 2015. Four years ago I moved with my family and now we live in Ontario, Canada. I began to teach Spanish since then, so much to adults as well as children.

Teaching Spanish has been an enjoyable experience, especially as it has allowed me to spread love for the Spanish language by instilling a passion for the subject in the hearts and minds of students.

Jessica is one of the best language teachers I've ever met. She was very patient and clear when I was practicing my Spanish with her. She is super friendly and makes every lesson fun and enjoyable. She also has experience being from colombia and living in Madrid making her an excellent teacher for any Spanish dialect. Gracias Jessica!

Jessica is not only the loving and caring mom of two young children but she’s also been their homeschool teacher for the past year.
She uses lots of games, plays and activities to engage with the kids and trigger their inner curiosity and eagerness to learn.
She’s the best mom, a great teacher and 100% trustworthy woman.

Jessica is an awesome teacher! My Spanish went from almost nil to being able to carry a conversation with confidence before travelling across South America. I was able to get by no problem. She incorporates different learning styles which really worked for me. You'll learn not only the language but also some of the Colombian slang and culture!
