This is how I became an Spanish teacher
I love teaching Spanish and opening doors to a new culture, new experiences and new opportunities for my students. However, my professional career started in a very different way.
I was born in the eighties in the north of the Southern Cone in Caracas, Venezuela, a country with an endless summer and a particular rainy season.
Even though my father is a Spanish and Literature teacher, I studied Public Accounting because I liked numbers and I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to work as soon as possible, even before graduating.
In 2006 I lived in London for almost a year, I started travelling and fell in love with Europe. Even though I learned how to read maps I got lost many times and every time I found my way I had a feeling that made me wonder ‘where will I get lost next time?
I made another important decision in 2008 and moved to Madrid where I lived for 8 years.
For over 10 years I worked in the external audit and finance fields in Venezuela and Spain. Working in these areas allowed me to learn, grow and fly in search of my dreams.
I learned to work, lead teams and provide my assistants with training and knowledge. That is when I realised how happy it made me to share my knowledge with others and that was the moment an idea started to grow which has now become MY Spanish for You.
In 2010 I commenced my Spanish teaching training in order to blend my two great passions: teaching and finance. My goal was to become a specialised teacher in the business and corporate sector.
This decision has changed my life. Throughout the years, I have delivered classes in various language institutes in Madrid and I’ve had the pleasure of having students from all over the world, at various levels and with diverse needs and/or motivations.
MY Spanish For You is the result of my personal and professional journey.
My experience as a financial auditor, a language student and a Spanish teacher has brought me here.
What I enjoy the most about teaching is having the opportunity of beat myself with each student, trying to understand their difficulties and searching for the best way to help them master every aspect of the Spanish language.
I always strive to “put myself in my students’ shoes” and understand their needs, motivations and objectives, since these directly affect their learning process.
Additionally, learning about other cultures, having a conversation and exchanging experiences and knowledge turn the classes into something more than learning a language.
I have extensive experience in the business environment; this is why I can help you if you need to learn Spanish for Business. We’ll work as a team so that you can achieve your goals, which may be to perform in the firm you work for, to report to the head office in Spain or Latin America, or to search for employment in a Spanish-speaking firm.
The best way for me to explain my teaching method to you and how I can help you is through my classes. I encourage you to take advantage of the online world benefits or face-to-face classes in your business and discover how far you can get with the Spanish language if you let me help you.
See you soon…
