ABOUT ME

Learn-Teach the neverending process

First of all, I do not consider my self  as just a teacher, but as a passionate learner. We all are creative beings by nature, but we do need meaningful experiences which allow us to channel our creative potential. Purpose, focus and visualization are main elements in my classes, they give sense, clarity and a common goal to achieve. 

We do not learn what is not interesting for us, but we need to widen our horizon in order to know that out of our bubble there is so much to know and to fall in love with. That is why traveling and getting in touch with a different culture is a way of enriching one’s perspective.

Paradoxically when we furnish the students with a lot of sensory resources (images, recordings, texts, videos, etc.)  they may lose focus, and become overstimulated. For me it is more important to privilege the student imaginative and performative  capacity. In doing so I developed a sensory strategy of kinesthesic-iconic-emotive representations. These representations are created by the student him/her self, and are articulated to a story or a communicative situation.

Something else about me, I love neuro and quantic science!

Knowledge is power, but knowledge about yourself is self empowerment.

EDUCATION

Where did I get my skills

2012 — 2018

Universidad Pedagógica Nacional

Degree in Spanish and Foreign Languages Teaching (English & French)

Teaching Integrity

The studies and practices at the University allowed me to become more knowledgeable and qualified in areas of pedagogy, linguistics, psychology, literature, language teaching methodologies and research methods. These various fields have all heavily contributed to, and influed my teaching methodology. Knowledge is not an unchangeable state of matter, it is in continuous change, it changes because we, human beings re-create and re-construct our conception and perception of life and ourselves according to the experiences and attitudes we adopt over time. Language makes part of this human construction.

WORK

Where did I get experience

Private Classes

JAN 2014 - CURRENT
Since 2014 I offer private classes for students and adults. I prefer to work on a content based approach in order to stimulate language learning having into account the areas of interest of the student. Multi-sensory modality is a resource I also use to employ in order to help the student to make an multi-sensory "image" of new vocabulary and expressions.

Language Center

2018-II

ESL TUTOR

I developed some VAKT strategies in order to support the learning process to those students who were having some difficulties in understanding, learning, or expressing in the foreign language. I made customized dialogs, exercises and explainations having into account each student profile.
