Why study Spanish with me?
I’m a teacher with 3 years of experience teaching Spanish as a second language. This experience lets me teach people from all over the world of all ages, from young children to older people. I speak fluent English and have taken Portuguese classes, so I understand the challenges that students face learning a new language. Aside from my experience teaching Spanish, I’ve worked in schools and local government educational projects in Medellín and surrounding municipalities; this has been useful to gain a deeper cultural sensitivity as well as skills in planning and producing materials for my classes.
My Spanish classes are
My classes are very flexible. I know the importance of grammar and structure when we learn and I use this knowledge to adapt classes to the needs, objectives and interests of my students. I use music and cultural immersion as fundamental elements during my planning. I like to take my students out into the city to have meaningful learning experiences while learning Spanish in Medellín.
