Native and certified teacher from Colombia. 12-year experience teaching at language institutions and at the university.

Methodology

I love motivating my students to communicate and learn from mistakes. I also like to conduct my teaching as much as possible in Spanish so that the students can have more contact with the language. Students can be immersed in the language from day one. I also use body language, visual images, intonation and gestures which all play an important role in communication.

Sometimes if the student wants, I can also clear up confusing points using one of the foreign languages I speak.

My experience as a teacher has allowed me to develop my creativity when planning lessons and explaining the language in a meaningful way. I like to use games for the beginner level students as it helps them to be more confident when using the language as well as allowing them to have fun while they are learning.

I also use the communicative approach so that from the first day, students can use the language they are learning. I not only teach the language, but I also like to promote cultural exchange.

I use a variety of media and materials in my teaching such as:

▸ Games

▸ PowerPoint presentations

▸ PDF files and text documents

▸ Images and videos

▸ Quizzes adapted to what the students have learned in the lessons

▸ Flashcards

▸ Homework assignments

▸ And much more!

Background

I have experience as a Spanish teacher at the university and language institutes. Teaching is my passion and I thoroughly enjoy being a language teacher. In the years I have been abroad, I have worked with students in one-on-one lessons. I have lived in Hungary, Brazil, England, Germany, and Norway.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Bogota, Colombia) and a diploma in Teaching Spanish Grammar as Foreign Language from Instituto Caro y Cuervo in Bogota. I also made an exchange in Brazil to learn Brazilian literature, grammar, and pronunciation of Portuguese in the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP).

Besides, I have a Master’s degree in outdoor education called Transcultural European Outdoor Studies (TEOS). This master's degree was awarded by Erasmus Mundus. I studied at the University of Cumbria (England), the University of Marburg (Germany) and the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences (Norway).

Carito is such a great teacher! I started pretty much from scratch and thanks to Carito I've progress a lot over the past weeks. Her classes are always very well prepared, she teaches in many different ways which makes the classes both fun and interesting. Carito is very knowledgeable and always has an answer to my questions. She is also very passionate about what she is doing and a very likable and an inspirational person. I am looking forward to continue working with her.

Carito is a really wonderful teacher. She's attentive and detail-orientated (in a friendly way!) and has a great teaching style - she supports you to learn in a way that works for you! From the very beginning, she created a relaxed environment where I could speak but also make errors with confidence and she would work just as hard as I did to improve my mistakes. Most of all, she's just a warm, enthusiastic person and a lot of fun to chat to!

Learning Spanish with Carito was an interesting and very helpful way of discovering the beauty of this language as well as getting to know the amazing culture of Latin America. She is an amazing person, very friendly and open minded, encouraging you to want to learn more. Her teaching methods are creative and fun, which create a relaxing atmosphere . Muchas gracias por todo!
