Experienced and Certified English Teacher- All Levels.

I'm a certified English teacher from Canada. I currently teach children, teenagers and adults ESL (English As a Second Language). I have experience with speaking, phonics, reading, writing, and grammar. My goal is not only to improve my student's level in a short time through immersion but also to introduce them to North American culture. Let's enjoy learning!

We can test your level first and then focus on whichever area you are looking to improve in. My technique is to teach the way a child learns a language, from the bottom-up! I always make sure my students have a fun, comfortable and safe environment where you can feel free to speak and engage in the language.

Please let me know your goals and I will work with you to achieve them!

Best wishes,

Teacher Vana

Private personalized spanish lessons in Medellín, Colombia and/or online
****NOT AVAILABLE FOR CLASSES AT THE MOMENT*** In the first class, I use it to get to know the student, The course of the class it will depend completely on your answers. For example, motivation plays a very important role in what approach we will have in class. It wouldn't be the same if you are preparing for an exam, if you are learning simply because you think the language sounds beautiful, or if you are learning for travel or etc. The method would be different. So If you have a motivation you must have objectives, This is an important step because it gives you a direction of what, how and when to do something. Maybe you want to achieve A1, A2, B1, c2 or Just simply a conversational level :) All this information it'll help me to personalize the class according to the student's interest and level. I'd love to hear from you! Hit me up :)

Voulez-vous parler la langue de Molière avec fluidité ? N'hésitez pas à me contacter !
Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne). En effet, j'enseigne mes cours de français aux étudiants qui ont une volonté de réussir et qui s'intéressent à apprendre petit à petit les bases de la langue, pour pouvoir par la suite les utiliser au cours d'une très vive conversation.

Private English lessons (language, pronunciation, culture ...)
Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance. Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible! I have a bachelor's degree in translation (English / Chinese) as well as a master's degree in multilingual communication (English / French). At the same time, I also took intensive English courses at a university in Florida and courses in modern language teaching. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details.
