I am a graduate of the University of Havana (Cuba) and of the Pontifical University of Salamanca (Spain). I hold a BSc in Microbiology and a Master's in Teaching Spanish Language and Culture. I love learning and teaching languages. Having lived in the francophone Canadian province of Quebec for 12 years, having taught French and Spanish to adults and teens for more than 14 years now, and being a native Spanish speaker, I will certainly be able to help my French/Spanish students of all levels attain their linguistic objectives. Being a language learner myself, I fully understand my students' difficulties. I know exactly what they struggle with and how to solve learning issues. I am also a dynamic teacher, a caring instructor, an inspiring professor, and a patient listener. I always encourage my students to overcome obstacles, learn from mistakes, and make progress. As a facilitator, I accompany my students throughout their learning journey and enjoy their progress as much as they do. My courses will be carefully prepared and tailored to my student's needs and interests. With my dynamic, student-centered approach, my students are sure to make progress in no time. I follow a communicative, task-oriented approach and I exploit all four language skills. I really hope to have the pleasure to transmit the passion and love I have always felt for language learning and teaching!
