I am spaniard, from Valencia city at the Mediterranean cost. I moved in Canada 5 years ago and started to teach Spanish. I got the ELE certificate validated by The Cervantes Institute as I actually enjoyed by teaching and decided to make it my future career. I do 100% Spanish classes using enjoyable tools for the students have fun while learning. Specially for beginners some English support is required, so I do it. I consider my teaching skills are quite good because of the results and feed back. Same happened when I taught Gemology for 20 years in Spain. I adapt my method to the student's personality and/or needs. I always try to go over every language learning area: Listening, Reading, Writing , and emphasizing the Speaking, which is the most difficult to improve alone. I have experiance in teaching Spanish for every level from A1 to C1 and for all kind of purposes. Depending on the student goals, I prepare grammar power point to help, do exercises, records, videos, media, performance theatre, and or games. I am a creative person, reason because of I enjoy this job so much. I want to be in a continuing learning and usually participate in the anual Spanish Teachers Congress in Montreal, Canada to get more ideas and tools. I like a lot to travel and consider myself fortunate as I had the opportunity of visiting so many countries. I have a bachelor degree in Biology and, of course, I like very much nature. Swimming, skying and hiking are my main hobbies.
