From MexicoLiving in Oaxaca, Mexico (05:28 UTC-03:00)
italki teacher since Jul 14, 2020
¡Hola! I'm Paloma from Oaxaca, México. A painter, writer, and traveler. I love meeting new people, and learning new things. I'm worried about the human footprint on the environments, therefore I like to do ecoturism, practice permaculture, reuse, diy and restoring, also I'm trying to improve minimalistic zero waste lifestyle (wish me luck). I began teaching Spanish and sharing about Mexico before starting traveling, I used to live in two beautiful and magical cities called Oaxaca and Cholula and there I had a few oppurtunities to start teaching Spanish and Mexican culture with foreign friends. Currently I'm in Argentina still learning about this country, the traveler lifestyle and sharing :)
Me as a Teacher
I'm a very friendly, outgoing and patient person. I love to talk about anything and everything, and learn new things through conversation. Always making questions and curious about who my students are, using spanish as a tool to exchange mindsets, experiences and culture. If you're looking for someone to practice your conversational skills, I'm your perfect match!
I can teach you idioms, coloquial phrases, and slang for your speech to be more natural. I will also correct some words or phrases if they could be missunderstood.
I'm so excited and honored to help you on your way to fluency :D
My lessons & teaching style
Normally, I'd like to focus on natural conversation by talking about daily topics. However, if you also'd like to study Spanish grammar I can help you. Also I encourage my students to have any random questions about, not only Spanish language but Mexican culture. You will be able to reach me anytime via Italki or messangers such as Skype anytime of the day. (So you won't have to wait till our next lesson to ask questions!) :)
Together we can find and build a plan to make your learning fun and rich.
Thank you Paloma. Your lessons not only help me improve my Spanish, but also cheer me up for the whole day. Thanks a lot for your energy and sense of humor!)

Muy muy muuuy bien! Paloma is so friendly! This was a wonderful introductory class and even though I have beginner Spanish, she managed to make me feel like we had a flowing conversation. Highly recommend and I look forward to many more classes with her.
