About Mauro

Although my CV may look a little unorthodox because I have not always been a teacher, I believe that my varied background, particularly my earlier career in creative design, enhances my teaching skills and allows me to offer interesting and engaging classes to my students. I am passionate about teaching, and discovered it as my true vocation during a career break spent in La Guajira where I was working on an adult literacy programme but expanded my role to incorporate teaching English to children of the native community and to staff at the hospital there. I found this experience immensely rewarding, and in fact, it was a life changing experience for me. I returned from La Guajira determined to pursue my new found interest for teaching, particularly the teaching of English and Spanish. To support my ambition to become a teacher I have since embarked on a number of activities designed to improve both the quality of my English as well as my general teaching skills.
