EducationI was born in Colombia and now reside in Australia. I have a bachelor degree in Psychology completed back home, now I have taken the challenge of teaching Spanish in my town Castlemaine. I do like to follow an specific textbook in my classes, I have learn a lot in my 5 years of experience in teaching the language, like: how to explain the basic Spanish grammar and to develop the structure that helps students keep engage and active in a class. I have taught to children and adults, from kindergarten ages to third age.
ExperienceI have experience in both: private and group tuition, with children and adults. I currently run two adult classes, beginners 2 and intermediate, they have been with me for over 2 years now. I am passionate about teaching Spanish, this year I had the beautiful opportunity to replace the Spanish teacher in a local primary school, for over 45 hours total. I love using conversation, games that encourage the students to talk in Spanish.
HobbiesI am a very active person, I love sharing the Colombian culture, as well as Spanish I am teaching how to dance Salsa as I love dancing. I have three groups and growing.
I am the lead singer of a local latin band.
I am a mother of two lovely children and committed to take Spanish as a career.
I love Needle felting, I have a shop on etsy so as you can see I like to keep myself busy and always looking for ways of making Spanish learning more fun.
