I believe the best way to learn a language is through conversation. I intend to engage my students on subjects of their interest to converse about if their level is high enough. I recognize my student's mistakes and work towards improvement. I also believe a good teacher should adjust him/herself to the needs and wants of the students. Conversation will be complemented with written exercises.

About the teacher
I am Fernanda and I study Anthropology and Sociology at McGill University. I was born in Mexico and when I was 16 I got a scholarship to go to a United World College in India. I spent my last 2 years of high school there and then I moved to Amsterdam to do my university. I am on my third and last year of university and I am on exchange in Montreal. I am a very responsible but flexible person. I like to meet new people and help them out with spanish. My classes are mainly conversational.
