About Tutor

I love music, languages, arts in general and I have a very artesanal life style.

Experience

Like a teacher, my experience began in 1991, teaching music, and I continue doing that in two in Public Music Schools in my city, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In the year 2014 I began doing language exchanges by internet and I found that helping other people learn and practise my language is nice and motivational, and I wanted to begin to teach languages... I had private students at home, Spanish learners and Hebrew learners.
I thought that knowing my own language very well is extremely important and I began studying the "Tecnicatura Superior en la Corrección de Textos" (professional proofreading). I didn't finish it yet, I have 42 % of the subjects approved. The career helps me a lot to know about formal and informal language in different countries, and in different contexts.
Last January I went to an intensive trainning called "Teaching Spanish as a Second or Foreign Language" at the International House Buenos Aires institute, where I learned how to work with the communicative method. So, my new challenge is to teach Spanish using this method... I understand that it means a lot of work preparing classes, but i saw that the students learn quickly and effectively.

Teaching Approach

Communicative method
