I was born in Colombia and had been living in the United States for over 20 years. My significant other and I recently relocated to the south of Spain and loving it. I am quite easy going, funny and easily make friends. We enjoy traveling and exploring this new country. In my down time I enjoy knitting and walking by the seaside; my next summer adventure is to finally learn to paddleboard.

Me as a Teacher
As a teacher I am very patient and caring. My experience has given me the ability to quickly assess the student's level and learning style so classes can be adapted to his needs. I believe I have honed in specific techniques to introduce various type of material. It is very different the way vocabulary is introduced as opposed to verbs. I am also quite creative and I have the skill set to improvise on new material.
Soy muy paciente y dedicada a mis alumnos. Debido a mi experiencia puedo rapidamente determinar el nivel del idioma asi como su estilo de aprendizaje , de esta manera las clases se pueden adpatar a sus necesidades.
My lessons & teaching style
I truly believe that learning a language has to be primarily thru conversation, regardless of the level. Hence, meaningful and purposeful conversations are my goals. I "drill" grammatical structures thru a question and answer format. We will do a lot of role-plays. I pay close attention in subtly correcting and emphasize on pronunciation.
Son fiel creyente que un idioma se aprende a traves de conversacion. Por tanto tendremos muchas conversaciones y " Role Plays" (dramatizaciones ). Simepre he puesto especial atencion a corregir, bien sea estructuras gramaticales como pronunciacion.
