About me

I’m from Venezuela, currently living in Asunción, Paraguay. I studied Modern Languages at Universidad Central de Venezuela and Bilingual Education at Universidad Evangélica del Paraguay. I am fluent in Spanish, English and Portuguese. I enjoy sharing experiences and knowledge meanwhile interacting with different cultures.
I mostly follow what is known as the Communicative Learning Approach for teaching, which focuses on oral practice and speaking activities. This means that we will cover different aspects of language (grammar, vocabulary, phonics, reading comprehension, listening awareness, etc) based on the communicative application of that aspect in real life situations. I also like to complement language learning with the use of music and multimedia materials such as series clips. I consider this is a more effective way of learning languages than the traditional methods such as the grammar-translation or direct method. I hope we can work out together! Regards!
I have over 5 years of experience in teaching languages to all ages and I am excited to help you improve your language skills. Seeing someone learn and improve is one of the most gratifying experiences a teacher can live and that made me fall in love with teaching. Learning a language is more than just memorizing a code to express messages, it is developing a whole new way of thinking and seeing the world, and there is where I want to help you out. I offer you a personalized learning program based on your needs and interests to keep you motivated and help you out to advance as quickly as possible.
