My name is Brayan Salazar (27 years old) and I am a native Spanish speaker from Ecuador with international experience in Morocco, China, and the USA. Like many of you, I've had different jobs such as an entertainer, manager, teacher, and coordinator. However, what has really fascinated me is to be a teacher which was the reason why I first moved to China and then Morocco. In these countries, I had the opportunity to work as a Teacher and Librarian in American Schools. Likewise, I have been teaching Spanish and English for 5 years and I am currently working in a High Scool in Ecuador.
Therefore, having had all these work experiences, traveled over the world in more than 21 countries, lived in 4 different continents, and met people from different cultures and backgrounds, has enabled me to teach and learn from kids and adults.
On the other hand, I am a very outgoing, passionate, and energetic person. I like all kinds of music and movies; I really love pop culture. Two of my favorite hobbies is to play basketball and go hiking.
Regarding my lessons, I am sure you all will find my accent very clear and easy to understand. I will help you improve your Spanish as fast as possible. My teaching methodology has nothing to do with books; I like to use authentic materials so that you can actually hear Spanish native speakers during our lessons. We will listen to music, watch movies and tv shows, read news and social media posts, play games, learn different slangs, and more; all in Spanish! For all this, I am very confident that you will love learning Spanish with me… I just can’t wait to meet all of you =)
