Acerca de mí:

My classes are student based and I easily adapt to students´ learning styles and needs. My interests in communication and language are informed by a strong belief that raising awareness about what we do with language is a crucial part of generating nurturing environments that help people thrive in their areas of interest.

I have more than 12 years of teaching and language coaching experience, with a focus on pedagogical strategies based on students’ unique learning styles. Having worked in different high-performance schools and prestigious universities and companies in Bogotá, I know the importance of building meaningful bonds for learning and social processes. 

While living in Spain my main activity has been English exam preparation, as well as business and English teaching for specific purposes. Also, I have worked as a language consultant and interpreter, and I have given lectures on strategic communication for business people, both in English and Spanish.
I excel in the areas of English, Spanish and Literature, and I pride myself on planning, implementing and delivering varied curricular activities that involve constant research, production and attention to learning processes.
