Spanish classes for students up to 13 years old. I’m a mexican teacher with over 4 years of experience.

Methodology

I base my classes on examples that are personally or culturally relative to the student, use authentic materials that keep students engaged, and display visuals for deeper understanding. All this in an interactive way where students build their own knowledge.

Background

I am 28 years old and was an English and Spanish teacher in Grade 1, 2, and 3 for four years in Mexico. I also tutored students for Math, reading, and writing in English and Spanish. I have a Degree in Education, a Diploma on Senior Management Speciality, and was accredited by the Alberta Government for my teaching assignment in my previous job in Mexico.

Sofía was my private english teacher back in México and that's why I strongly recommend her, I know she is very responsible, professional and a kind person. She knows how to teach a language in a fun way.

I also have knowledge she has years of experience as a spanish and english teacher in a really prestigious school back in Guadalajara, where only the best teachers are accepted and high standards are the norm.

Take advantage Sofía is now in Australia, choose her as your tutor, you will never regret it!

Sofia is a teacher well prepared, enthusiastic and outgoing to talk to and learn from. She will be interested in how you learn so she can select activities and strategies to help you achieve your goal. I am pretty sure you will enjoy learning spanish with her. I had the privilege to work with her, I am certain her passion is teaching and her students love her classes.
