Certified Spanish & English Teacher (ELE-TEFL) Lessons for adults and teens!
italki teacher since Mar 25, 2022
Hi! I’m Andrea and I’m from Colombia! I love meeting and having fun conversations with new people. If you want to improve your fluency, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student, it’s important that you speak as much as you can to expand your vocabulary everyday. I can help kids and adults who want to learn grammar, practice reading, writing, common phrases or simply talk about any subject they are interested in, in order to develop their confidence with the language.
Me as a Teacher
I believe that practice makes perfect, and I have learned that throughout my years of learning and studying languages. I consider myself a fun teacher, a friend who you can have a casual conversation with, and will also correct you in the most empathetic way.
For my clases with kids, I offer tutoring, homework, pronunciation tactics, test preparation, lessons base on travels and culture and a lot of conversation practice.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is very interactive and supportive. I am highly adaptable, I can’t say I prefer one teaching method, I think every student is different and have different learning skills so I adapt and approach everyone in the most transparent and empathic way according to their needs, whether they are beginners or advanced students, kids or adults.
In class, we will practice pronunciation, discuss articles, current world events, practice writing, reading and speaking a lot. I wanna know about your most recent travel experience and that country you dream to visit! I’ll try my best to provide a safe space to learn, practice, and make mistakes.

Had my first lesson with Andrea and I'm excited to continue learning with her. Andrea is super organized and allows you to figure things out on your own before explaining something, which is very effective. She speaks very clearly in Spanish and English, so it's easy to understand and clarify things when needed.

Andrea's lessons were engaging, useful, and she was very patient with my daughter. Always encouraging her to try to speak . She paces the class just right so you feel challenged but not overwhelmed.
I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning Spanish.

Andrea was very easy to talk to. She was good at feeling my level of Spanish and meeting me there. This was the most enjoyable and productive session I've had so far.

Andrea is a great teacher. She clearly puts all the content we learn on a whiteboard so you can have that visual to help retain the information. And she will always explain things even beyond the specific lesson when I have questions.

Very nice first lesson. Straight to the point, which I love. Didn't expect to actually learn something in the first 30 minutes but I actually did.
