« I attended to an intensive course where Belen was one of the teachers. During the classes, we had different activities, not only grammar tasks. For example, we made some role games, that made us break the ice and feel more confident about what we were learning. I’ve really enjoyed the classes and I’ve learned a lot! Belen has always been ready to clear up our doubts. She is an excellent teacher and a wonderful person, who is always looking for helping her students to improve their English »

I'm a teacher and a native Spanish speaker. I can definitely help you to improve or learn.

Methodology

I accommodate myself according to your needs.
What would you like to learn? Vocabulary, grammar, just practice your speaking?
It doesn't matter what you need to reinforce the most. I will make sure you learn something new and useful in every class. Just, give it a shot. I guarantee effectiveness.

Background

I became a teacher in 2011. I started teaching kids, then teenagers, after adults, and finally I got the chance to go to teach a couple of companies too.
I can be in a classroom with one or more than thirty students. I always find a way to make my class as interesting as necessary to keep my student attentive.

Passionate teacher and learner of the English Language. Have been teaching it for 8 years now.

Was one of the teachers of the Summer Program which allowed students from 5 to 14 years old.
Currently, teaching at a Non-profit English Institute for refugees and immigrants in the United States, as well as some tutoring lessons.
As a foreign speaker, understand some of the struggles students have in the process of learning and consider that have the passion, experience, energy, disposition, and patience to embrace students and take their way of learning to the next level. Really love teaching!
Took several courses to improve English skills, and still keep learning; always look for an opportunity for growth and professional development.
Looking forward to apply and share all these ideas to new Spanish learners
