About Mariela S.About me
I'm originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I love to exchange cultural experiences and travel. I lived in Costa Rica, Mexico, and the United States. I have traveled throughout Central and South America. I have also taken several trips in France, Spain, and Montreal.
My hobbies are: studying languages, architecture, playing guitar and piano, cooking, and outdoor activities such as snorkeling, running, riding my bike, and gardening.
Qualifications & Experience
I studied Architecture at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have earned a Bachelor's degree in French from the University of Texas at Austin. I also have a teacher certification in elementary, middle, and high school.
I have been using the online methodology to teach languages since March, 2006.
I have been teaching languages since 2003 and there hasn't been a day in which I regretted having taken the teaching path.
I have taught different kinds of students: one-on-one classes, group classes, adults, kids, teenagers, beginners, and advanced students.
I had the opportunity to live in different places on the planet, which has given me a completely different perspective on life and a rich cultural experience that I love to share with my students.
My program is completely customized to the student's necessities. Some would rather focus on learning the language simulating real life situations, others would rather study grammar and understand each idiomatic structure.
Each student has a specific reason to learn a language: whether it is for business, a vacation, or just for fun.
My goal is to respect each student's necessities and respond in providing them with the tools that better satisfy their needs.
