I am a Spanish teacher.
Last year I took the leap and became self-employed. In August 2011, I created my location independent business, Online Spanish Tutor.
Since then, I had ups and downs as any beginning of a new business, but over everything I learn every day and do what I like the most, teaching and I finally got to choose how and what I teach. Right now, my business is one year old and it sustain myself comfortably but I keep learning and finding ways to improve my services.
Here I include what I have in the About page:
“I am María, a Spanish as a Foreign language teacher (ELE) born in 1980 in a small city in the north of Spain, Burgos.
Since I was a child my dream was to be a teacher and to learn new languages in order to travel the world. I am very lucky because I am living my dream.
I have a lot of experience teaching in different European countries where I could develop my passion which is teaching Spanish and sharing the Spanish culture.
I always loved learning new languages and experiencing new cultures. My years learning foreign languages and living as an expatriate in different countries help me understand what my students go through when trying to learn Spanish. After few years teaching French and English I discovered my true path: spread my own language and culture, the reason why I started my career as a foreign language teacher training with Instituto Cervantes (Dublin).
I have taught Spanish to students of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds, at all levels. I love teaching Spanish and I notice repeatedly that my own learning continues as each day I find new ways to approach the different learning styles of my students”.
