italki teacher since Nov 25, 2021
I am María Camila Aizaga, I am 22 years old, I study a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and English, and I am from Colombia. I love learning languages and that is why I have studied English (level B2), Italian (A2), and Korean (basic). I like pop music (in English and Korean mainly) and a bit of alternative / indie rock.
Me as a Teacher
I am a student, so I know what we like and attracts us the most. For this reason, I like to use graphic and audio material more than long and complicated readings. I am willing to be your help and never judge you for your knowledge, since I know how difficult it is to learn a new language. I am patient, so don't worry :)
My lessons & teaching style
I like to be very active and speak little to allow my students to practice the language a lot. The method that seems to me the best to apply in teaching a foreign language is Suggestopedia, by Lozanov. This method is based on freeing the individual from stress, shame, nerves and other personal limitations.

Vielen Dank für diese großartige spanisch Stunde! Allein war es mir nicht möglich die unterschiedlichen Verwendungen der beiden Verben ser und estar zu erschließen. Mit Marias Hilfe war dies bereits nach 30 Minuten gelöst und obendrein lernte ich auch noch viele neue Vokabeln und Ausdrücke. Ich kann ihre Klassen absolut empfehlen.
Thank you so much for this awesome Spanish lesson. I had big trouble spotting the difference between the verbs ser and estar. I could solve this problem with Maria's help in less than 30 minutes and also learn a lot new expressions and vocabulary as we were moving forward. I highly recommend to visit her classes.
First lesson with Maria was great. Talked mostly in Spanish but her English is also really good and she can easily translate between the two languages. She pushes you to get better and corrects your mistakes too. Surprised this was her first lesson but highly recommend her to anybody who wants to improve their Spanish or even English!
