Hi! My name is Monica, I'm from Peru and I live in Lima.
My major is on educational psychology and I worked for many years giving therapy to children and some with adults.
When I was younger, I lived for several years in the USA and in Belgium, that´s where I learned to speak English and French.
I love visiting different countries and learning about other cultures!
Teaching makes me really happy because it makes me feel useful, and at the same time I learn a lot.
I hope we can meet soon!
Me as a Teacher
I´m a very empathetic, patient and fun teacher. The most important thing for me is that my students feel comfortable, enjoy our lessons, and above all, that they learn a really usefull spanish. I also take special care on making dynamic lessons so that you never get bored.
Making mistakes is an important part of the learning process, so don´t be afraid of making many!
I made the courses to have an ELE certificate (teaching Spanish as a foreign language), so I'm quialified to teach in a very pedagogical way.
My lessons & teaching style
I will first ask you about your goals for learning Spanish and then we will talk about your interests so that I can plan the lessons around that. Depending on your Spanish level and goals, we will focus on vocabulary, grammar, conversation, reading, writing… or everything at the same time.
I like to use different kind of materials and activities during the same lesson. Then, if you wish, I can leave you some homework we will correct together later.

I have taken many classes on iTalki with different teachers and Monica has been my favorite! She is very patient and kind. She provides me materials and resources to help me learn outside of our classes on my own. She is awesome!

Monica is the perfect Spanish teacher for me. She accommodates my learning style/abilities, is very patient, helpful and encouraging, is fluent in English, and has a wonderful sense of humor, all of which make the lesson experience enjoyable and fun.
