italki teacher since Nov 1, 2021
All throughout my life I have been surrounded and exposed to many different cultures. I was born in Argentina and lived there until I was eight-years-old; Brazil is my father’s country; my grandmother is from Portugal; my mother’s family comes from Poland; I’ve lived in Spain since 2008; and more recently I've spent a semester living abroad in Denmark. I have had the pleasure of visiting and learning about all of these countries which undoubtedly, have shaped me into a young woman who recognises the tremendous opportunity that diversity of perspective and experience offers.
Me as a Teacher
Having lived in now in 4 countries has made me appreciate even more all that knowing different languages can offer, and it has made me realise how important it is to not only know the grammar and formal parts of a language, but also to be confident in speaking it, even if mistakes are made.
My lessons & teaching style
I'm here to help you overcome that possible fear of communicating in Spanish. My classes will be mainly conversational, although we will also touch on topics of grammar or vocabulary.
When I was little I spoke with an Argentine accent, but when I moved to Madrid I had to learn the local accent. Therefore, do not be intimidated to think that you will not understand me, or that I will not understand you, since I know how difficult it can be to adapt to local speech at first. The whole goal of my classes is that you improve your speaking abilities and can understand the locals!

I had a great first lesson with Serena. She was very easy to talk to and understand. She also helped me with words I didn't know and the conversation flowed naturally. I highly recommend Serena. ¡Muchas gracias!
