Language Exchange: English & Spanish (and some Galician)

While in Spain, I not only held private English lessons but participated in language exchanges as well! 

Every week, I met with language exchange partners to converse in English and Spanish, alternating between weeks. This was beneficial because I got to practice my Spanish with a native (and vice versa). 

Through these opportunities, I was able to make new friends, learn more about the Spanish culture, and adapt better to my new, temporary home. 

I was also lucky to be in the autonomous community of Galicia. The Galicians and the region have shown me an entirely different side of Spain than what I've previously experienced and learned about. I even picked up some Galician phrases and words while living there!

Private Language Tutor: English & Spanish

I started off by providing English conversation lessons to adults as a side job in Spain. 

After the COVID-19 pandemic started, I began virtually holding English and Spanish classes to others internationally as well. 

Most notably, I tutor a 6-year-old who is from Shanghai, China. I need to plan lessons that can actively engage an ESL student their age. I found ways to effectively tutor online. This included educating myself on how to teach English fundamentals and Spanish as a new foreign language.

In less than a year, the student's parents have already notified me that their grades in English class have greatly improved! I am so proud!!

Moved country
Started a new role at Xunta de Galicia
Moved to Vilagarcía de Arousa, Spain for the Auxiliares de Conversación program that's run by the Spanish government.
Here, I started my role as English Language and Culture Assistant.

Through these opportunities, I had the joy (and the challenge) of creating lesson plans and activities that are fit for each class and student. The classes I taught included English, bilingual art, and bilingual P.E. My students ranged from preschoolers to 6th grade, who all come from very diverse backgrounds. From in-person to virtual lessons, I had to be resourceful and think outside the box to make my teaching as engaging and efficient as possible for everyone.
