On teaching...
I really love being a teacher. It’s challenging to give people what they need to advance and become better at what they are trying to do to achieve their goals. I enjoy those little moments when I come up with something really creative for a student, watching them smile on the screen as they enjoy the learning process as well. 

Learning a language can be daunting - I know this because I have been struggling with languages most of my life. I still have a long way to go with both my teaching and my learning, but I am really looking forward to the challenge ahead. In these short (almost) 2 months of being on iTalki, my life has really changed in a positive way. 

I love talking about science, philosophy, sport and life in general while also giving all my tangible assistance in their lives. I just wanted to somehow capture this feeling in words and share it with you all. Thank you once again to ALL of my students, temporary and regular. You have all contributed to my ever evolving and changing teaching style. Muchas gracias a todo :)

Teachers: Anything to share with your experiences?

Learners: Please send me some of your experiences of great teachers if you can as well (sending in English and your native language would be great to further stimulate interest too!)

As a teacher, there are amazing moments. When students are committed and enthusiastic they can be a joy to teach. We all know that they are perhaps too many moments that make us feel dispirited, but the good make up for the bad, and are why I keep on doing this.
