Location: Argentina - Nationality: Argentina
Female, 32 Age
Currently live in Mendoza, Argentina
- Degree: I am a Professor in English (which equals in level CPE plus the pedagogical knowledge)
-Work experience: My main job is as a teacher. However, I have taken some jobs up as they allowed me to work with the language. I wasa guide in a farm, a receptionist, a coordinator in an english institute (I was in charge of organizing the courses, slecting the materials, recriting teachers and, of course, teaching).
- My passions are travelling and learning languages. Besides English I speak French, Portuguese and Greek. As regards travelling I've toured almost all my country and abroad, Chile, England and Spain.
- Achievements : I have 10 years teaching experience, work as a teacher at schools as well as college. All my students have taken Cambridge international exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE, IELTS and TOEFL) in different levels
From 2009 to 2010: Teaching at a primary school
From 2007 up to now: Teaching at a secondary school
From 2007 up to now: Teaching at private institutes
From 2014 up to now: Working in college, training future teachers. I teach them English phonetics and phonology, and what we call language which is a subject where I tech them to produce academic essays
From 2015 up to now: Working as the coordinator in an institute. I selected the material, evaluated students, organized the groups, recruit teachers and so on
I work with real materials (For example:Newspapers, radio, broadcasts, Interviews, ...) to bring up vocabulary and extract grammar issues to work.
I ask my learners to use english 100 % of the time. This develops a better understanding of the language at work. Also, learners learn without actually feeling they are doing so, and see improvements much faster than with other methods.
