Personal Tags

I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia. I've been teaching Spanish online to students from different backgrounds, skills and learning styles for more than two years now. I am very patient, enthusiastic and fun to talk with! :) 

How my background prepares me to teach:

I always enjoyed learning other languages and about other cultures. As I learned other languages, I discovered linguistics techniques that led me to my success with those other languages. I decided to use those same skills to help others learn my mother tongue. On Language Tools, I would love to help all those Spanish learners improve their Spanish language skills so that they can achieve fluency.

Teaching methods or materials that I typically use during my lessons:

My approach really depends on your individual needs and goals. I usually focus on conversational practice. However, I believe that listening, reading, writing and grammar are just as important as speaking; therefore, I also like to give emphasis to them in my lessons. When it comes to working with beginners or absolute beginners, I tend to start by teaching you basic Spanish phrases and vocabulary. We will also work on grammar – I will try to get you speaking Spanish as quickly as possible.

Is there anything you should have or should do in advance:

I usually give homework based on what we covered in class (reading, videos, writing, grammar exercises, etc.), so I expect the student to go over it before our next lesson.

Personal Learning Summary

My name is María and I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia. I enjoy learning languages, talking to people from different places in the world and learning about their culture. I am learning English and German - English is my favorite language :-)
