Anamaria
Bachelor of Arts in Modern Languages
Certified Subject: Spanish

My name is Anamaria, I'm from Bogota, Colombia. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Languages in 2009.  I came to California  in 2010 to further my studies and career in the Education field.

I'm very passionate at teaching different languages because I know that learning any language allows us to open our lives to a variety of cultures and countries. My experience teaching Spanish and English as a second language ranges from young children to adults of all ages who want to learn, for professional or personal goals.

In my classes I like to combine different skills starting with speaking face to face with the students, followed by the basis of grammar that will help the students to build a strong foundation for learning Spanish.  I like to include dynamic, enjoyable activities and topics to  build the vocabulary and tools to successfully speak Spanish.
