About Me

¡Hola! My name is Mariela and I am a native speaker of Spanish from Chile. I currently live in Spain, where I'm continuing studies at Universidad de Sevilla. Last year I moved from the United States where I had been teaching Spanish for the last 4 years.
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 Languages for a long time and I have a Master of Arts in Foreign Language Teaching from Michigan State 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.

See you soon! ¡¡Hasta luego!!
