« What makes Aylen really different than the other Spanish teacher I had is that sometimes, she jumps out from textbooks and uses the materials that I am interested in, such as Spanish music or Spanish League Football. This engages me with Spanish culture and makes my learning experience much more fun! Aylen is a really patient teacher while I was trying to learn the pronunciation and the verb conjugations. I had a lot of fun learning Spanish from her. »

Background

I have been teaching all my life since I can think of it. Being an outstanding student I remember myself since always helping my colleagues at school especially with social sciences topics. Later on I started teaching as a way of life while studying at the University and years later after I got graduated from Psychology I taught in a Language Learning Center my family owned in Madrid. I have had students in Canada while leaving there during a summer and here in Champaign since I moved on 2014.

I'm a native Spanish speaker with a high command of my own mother tongue and someone who loves to teach and share with others its own passions for culture, education and languages.
I can teach from kids to adults all levels and needs including grammar, vocabulary, oral communication, Spanish for business etc.

My own professional background as a Psychologist provides me with the needed skills and the ideal methodology while teaching my students.

What makes Aylen really different than the other Spanish teacher I had is that sometimes, she jumps out from textbooks and uses the materials that I am interested in, such as Spanish music or Spanish League Football. This engages me with Spanish culture and makes my learning experience much more fun!

Aylen is a really patient teacher while I was trying to learn the pronunciation and the verb conjugations. I had a lot of fun learning Spanish from her.
