About Cory


Bio

Hi. I'm an experienced teacher of ESL; I lived for 6 years in Bogotá, Colombia, where I taught English and learned Spanish. At the end of my stay there, I took a certificate course to be a Spanish teacher, and passed with high grades (4.5/5). The course was with the Instituto Caro y Cuervo which has an alliance with the Instituto Cervantes in Spain, which is largely considered to be the world authority on teaching Spanish as a second language.

I'm good with languages and have learned a lot...

Hi. I'm an experienced teacher of ESL; I lived for 6 years in Bogotá, Colombia, where I taught English and learned Spanish. At the end of my stay there, I took a certificate course to be a Spanish teacher, and passed with high grades (4.5/5). The course was with the Instituto Caro y Cuervo which has an alliance with the Instituto Cervantes in Spain, which is largely considered to be the world authority on teaching Spanish as a second language.

I'm good with languages and have learned a lot about teaching styles, focusing mostly on the communicative approach. I have adopted practices supported by science (and logic!) such as developing a good relationship with the language so that learning it becomes an enjoyable practice instead of a tedious or intimidating one. I focus on building a good handle (both through listening compression and production) of the phonetics/phonology which becomes the foundation for everything. I focus on teaching grammar and vocabulary through context- and association-based learning. There is a lot more to say but not enough space to say it!

I have a TESOL certificate as well as 6+ years experience teaching English as a Second Language to native Spanish speakers.

I have an ELE (Español como lengua extranjera) certificate and over a hundred hours experience teaching.

Contact me if you want an effective teacher who cares about your progress and will put the time and effort into helping you acquire the results you seek.
