My interests, skills, and teaching experience run the gamut! I see myself as a "Renaissance teacher," if you will. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Science and Policy from the Colorado College, one of the most competitive liberal arts schools in the country, as well as minors in Studio Art and Music; that said, I now teach ESOL in Spain during the academic year. My experiences abroad include private English lessons (online and offline), teaching groups of adolescents at an extracurricular language academy, and assistant-teaching at five different Spanish public schools. I also recently finished up a summer job teaching Figure Drawing and Portraiture classes to adolescents via Zoom, having also taught private piano lessons for six years in the past and doing summer environmental education with an NGO.
I love teaching, especially when students can contextualize their learning via hands-on and real-life examples. My teaching style generally involves plenty of games, out-of-the-box thinking, and reassurance and support whenever possible. I keep my teaching student-centered and seek class design that best suits your needs.
I have an approximate C1-C2 level (fluent) in Spanish, according to international language assessment frameworks such as the CEFR. I also speak Catalan with near fluency.
