Hi, my name is Marcela and I'm a Teacher in Verbling of Spanish.
I’m Mexican, I’m psychologist and I also have a bachelor degree in Spanish literature. I was living in Spain while I was studying my master of research in psychology.
Later, I got Certified as a Bilingual Teacher (Spanish/English) in the United States. I lived there 2 years, working as a bilingual Teacher in elementary school from pre-k to 5th grade. My main subjects were Reading and Writing, so I know strategies for comprehension, writing and speaking.
I consider myself as a specialist in language because my education and experience.
However, I started teaching in 2001, so I have 17 years of teaching experience with people of different ages between 0-35 years old.
Right now I work as a Teacher at the University for the Bachelor degree of psychology and for the degree in Education. I teach acquisition and development of language, among others.
I love teaching.
My level of English is B2 and my level in French is A2, but I study French level B1 actually.
As a teacher my main focus is the student, so I work with them by identifying their skills, and developing their potential, I can see where my students are, and I take them to the next level.
So, if they want to learn from 0 or if they want to improve what they already know, I will help them with that. I help them to reach out their goals by a lot of practice.
I can adapt a session to the age, language level or goals; for children or young or adults. Depending on their skills, I can speak 100% my language, or 50%/50% and the other one, or 80%/20%. I have a lot of activities and materials: books, pictures, games, etc. I teach grammar, comprehension, speaking, writing, how to take a test for certification, etc. And I like technology so I can provide the resources by .pdf, .doc, jpg, video, etc.
Finally, I’d like sharing my language, Spanish, and culture with people all around.
