About Nella

I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and Sociology from Manhattan College and have lived in Spain for three years where I taught English and completed my Master´s degree. I have a passion for the language and culture, which I love to share with others.

My experience includes four years of teaching English and Spanish. I have had the opportunity to see my students grow from being scared to speak to having confidence in their speaking ability in Spanish through utilizing a combination of grammar and speaking activities.

My philosophy for teaching is to create a learning environment catered to each individual's learning styles, teach within an active setting, utilizing: games, activities and outdoor excursions. I believe it is important to have the mind working and body working to fully be able to learn to speak a new language. My mission is to create an environment where children and adults can learn the language and be able to use it in their daily lives with confidence.

Career Development

For the past three years my social work career has included helping others find their career path and guiding them through the obstacles and successes in order to achieve that goal. My Master's degree in Southern Spain allowed me to work with immigrants find their transition into a new environment along with provided extensive information on social and cultural development. My current employment allows me to work with high school students academically along with college students during their journey in deciding their education and career path. I am passionate about watching others succeed and helping people find their own way with confidence.

Reading

Throughout the past 6 years I have been tutoring children in English and general study skills. Assisting children with reading and writing is a huge component of improving English skills.

In 2010, I graduated from Manhattan College Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.

I am currently an Academic Coach in Austin, TX. I assist students with their homework, while simultaneously teaching them good study skills based on their strengths and learning styles. I believe teaching a student a method of learning that will empower them and strengthen their weaknesses. I have lived in Spain for three years where I taught English and completed my Master´s degree.

I began swimming around the same time I was learning to walk. Throughout my entire life I have been on a competitive swim team. During that time, our team assisted younger students with improving their stroke technique and even teaching the preschoolers how to float in the water.
