¡Hola! My name is Mariela and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Chile. I've been living in the United States for the last 4 years teaching Spanish to High School students and English to adult immigrants.
Languages are my passion and teaching them is one of my favorite things to do with them only second to study them! I believe one of my strengths as a teacher is that myself am a learner of Foreign Languages and for that reason, I am in a position to understand you because I have been where you are. Learning languages can be a very fun and exciting experience if you get the right guidance. I not only have this experience but I also have been teaching Foreign Language for a long time and I have a Master of Arts in Foreign Language Teaching from MichiganState University
My experience teaching English and Spanish is very wide: 8 years teaching every imaginable student in every available setting! From pre-k to High School, as a school teacher and as a private tutor, in-office business English teaching in adults learning centers in Chile and the US! I even gave private lessons of Spanish in Germany while leaving abroad! You need to get ready for an exam?! Not only have I worked as an examiner but also have successfully prepared students to take them and I have taken many too so I can tell you lots about how to get ready for many of them.
As you can see, I'm very flexible with my teaching and I will always try to adjust to my student's needs. I believe in tailored learning and years planning curriculum has given me a set of skills to do so. For this reason, I strongly encourage my online (future) students to take a demo lesson so we get to know each other and talk about your learning goals.
