25 years' experience in communications, international programs, and recruitment
italki teacher since Nov 25, 2021
My name is Arlene. I was born in Puerto Rico. I am fluent in Spanish and English and I am learning Portuguese. I have a bachelor’s degree in science, a master’s degree in public communication, and a 25-year career in recruitment, international programs, and communication.
I enjoy simplicity, nature, and activities that help me stay more present in my body such as qigong and somatic meditation. My favorite book is The Alchemist.
Me as a Teacher
I am a tutor in Spanish and English and have a Puerto Rican accent. I believe that sometimes the challenge is not the language itself, but that we feel very nervous about speaking it. My intention is to create a safe space for learning.
I love using my personal and professional experience to support you in:
* preparing for a successful job interview
* practicing your current skills for personal growth
* editing your documents
* improving your public speaking skills
* preparing for the U.S. Naturalization Test
My lessons & teaching style
I welcome students from the beginner to the advanced levels. My teaching style is flexible and I constantly adapt the classes to meet your needs. I welcome and value your feedback.
The lessons will be a space for you to practice your conversational and/or writing skills. I suggest pausing regularly, so that I can provide you with feedback and so that you can integrate what you are learning. The topics for discussion will be based on those areas that are most relevant for you.
If this resonates with you, I invite you to schedule a trial session so that we can discuss your goals and you can determine if I am the right tutor for you. Take care!
