About Paola

Hello!

I am from Colombia, I graduated of Environmental Management, and I have a true passion for teaching. I have over 5 years of experience teaching. During my career in Colombia I had the opportunity of being a tutor in the University, I taught my classmates Math and English. Also, on my free time I tutored school children, mainly in Science and English.

Then, I started my own company, in which I taught groups of rural communities, youth and adults (ages 18–65), how to strengthen their own business from accountability to marketing. Furthermore, I worked in a Butterfly House making workshops for children (ages 5-14) in environmental education. In the last 3 years, I have been making consulting in social enterprise, and grant writing, this has gave me a lot of expertise writing essays, thesis, papers, and projects.

I have been living in Chicago since 2015, and I have taught Spanish to professionals who work in social sector. I love teaching children as well as adults. Contact me if you want to improve, learn or practice Spanish! I use dynamic methods of learning, and real situations based on your needs.

I look forward to become part of your learning experience!!

Project Management

I studied environmental and social management with emphasis in project management.

I have experience for 8 years working as a consulter with groups of communities and non-profit organizations, teaching them project management, and grant writing.

As a Project Manager in my own company, I led the project formulation of five organizations. Efforts resulted in $176,000 governmental funds granted.

I created and implemented Andoke Foundation strategic plan (operation, administrative, and marketing), which resulted in increased profit by up 40% in a year.

Definitely recommend — Paola went above and beyond expectations. She was able to adapt the lessons to my skill level and gave useful exercises to help me learn. She sends notes on things to work on after class so that you learn from your mistakes. Additionally, she's very patient and fun to learn with! I definitely recommend ...
