About Adriana C.

About Me

I'm an American English and Spanish splitting my time between Akron, OH and Mexico City. I have a creative background and with more than 10 years of professional work in the creative field, as my career progressed I discovered that teaching was my calling, more than my passion for art. Since then, I have dedicated myself to becoming the best language teacher I can be in order to help my students achieve their language and professional goals.

As a teacher, I love to interact with my students through fun activities and great conversations. I believe people learn more quickly when they are relaxed and having fun. This helps students break through their shyness and feel more comfortable expressing themselves or approaching me with any questions or doubts they may have. I love to explain any topic as many times and in many ways as possible, until my students feel confident they understand and have mastered that particular topic at hand.

I pride myself on making my classes as easy and productive as possible. Not only that, but I achieve this through interactive games and activities that I am constantly looking for or creating through mobile apps or digital learning websites. I use PowerPoint presentations, videos and other visual aids to help my students maintain their focus on the topic at hand and I encourage questions and open conversations to help improve communication skills, vocabulary, and grammar in order to improve on fluency and accuracy as much as possible.
