Maren her, I have lived and worked as a teacher back and forth from Oslo to Costa Rica for a long time!
I grew up in Porsgrunn, where we speak Bokmål dialect, and speak English and Spanish fluently. I always like to try new things and stay active, and love to get to know new people, learn about new cultures and traditions! Among some interest of mine, we have: surfing, art, interior design, music, dance, food, yoga, meditation, languages, hikes and m.m.
My educational background consists of a bachelor’s degree in teaching from UIO, (so I will try to explain grammar in the best way) and market economy from BI.
I always try and show up with a lot of energy and motivation!
Me as a Teacher
As I learned Spanish as an adult, I understand the journey of learning a new language, the fear of speaking out loud and saying anything wrong. But I also know that that is the way to learn, from our mistakes. I will make you feel comfortable right away, I am very outgoing, and I always try and find common ground so we can get to know each other! I tend to be a bit humorous when it comes to understanding and looking at not only Norwegian but cultural characteristics in general.
Since I have a good ear for languages and after living abroad for a long time, I can help you create bridges and memorize words, phrases, and sentences based on cultural similarities.
My lessons & teaching style
Lessons 55 min.
I have a lot of materials to choose from, and that will suit individual needs.
If you want to prepare for the Norwegian test for higher education or work, we could go through the materials that Kompetanse Norge provides, so I can guarantee you will pass the level you wish for!
Grammar from A1 – C1, I'll try to make it fun, so hopefully that could make this part a bit better!
As I have a little knowledge about everything, I am sure we will find something in common fast! I assure you there will always be something to talk about in my class!
