About Juanita


Bio

I am from Bogotá, Colombia. I lived there almost my entire life thus my native tongue is Spanish. I am proficient in English thanks to the fact that I lived some of my teenage years in Florida and also did a postgraduate degree in England. I also speak French, which I learned through many years of study at the Alliance Française and in the Sorbonne University in Paris.

I am from Bogotá, Colombia. I lived there almost my entire life thus my native tongue is Spanish. I am proficient in English thanks to the fact that I lived some of my teenage years in Florida and also did a postgraduate degree in England. I also speak French, which I learned through many years of study at the Alliance Française and in the Sorbonne University in Paris.

My major is in Economics from Universidad de los Andes in Colombia, I have a Master of Arts in Economics from the same university and a Master in Business Administration in International Management from the University of Exeter in the UK. My work experience in international management as well as my studies in both languages, Spanish and English, led me to discover my passion for languages. I've studied grammar for the three languages I speak, which gives me an advantage when teaching Spanish.

In addition to my experience as a tutor, I am a Spanish instructor at Berlitz Language Institute and I am also a Spanish teacher for grades K through 4th at a catholic school in my town.

An important part of my teaching method is the emphasis on the cultural aspect of the new language while introducing the grammar slowly as we move along the learning process. One of the tools I use is the analysis of newspaper, magazine articles and videos of interest to the student, from which we can review together grammar, comprehension, vocabulary and pronunciation. In the case of children, I use many visual aids so I do not need to translate what I say but rather speak the whole time in Spanish. I also teach them through songs and games.

I value the students' time so I prepare my lessons according to their level of knowledge, what they're learning in school and mainly their interests and likes.

I charge $60 for in-person or online lessons.
My availability is from 9am to 8pm, Monday through Friday. I require a 24 hour notice for cancellation.

The Spanish spoken in Colombia is known for having the most neutral accent within Ibero-America and grammar-wise it is exemplary. If you would like to learn and improve your Spanish and learn the culture, I am sure we can make a wonderful team to achieve this goal in an enjoyable way.

My work experience in international trade at the Ministry of Foreign Trade of Colombia having to negotiate with the different governmental institutions in the different languages I'm fluent in, as well as my educational background in English, Spanish and French has given me the tools to compare the three languages and be able to analyze the grammar and pass on my knowledge to my students in an easy and comprehensible way.
