Hi! My name is Paola and I'm from Colombia.

I'm a professionally trained teacher of English and Spanish from the National University of Colombia, who loves to create an exciting environment and bring positive energy to my classroom.

Having learned a second language as an adult has taught me the difficulties a language learner may face. I can help you develop strategies to overcome obstacles you may encounter, according to your learning style and level. I love helping my students gain confidence in the knowledge they already have and build on it to improve their skills.

Let me know what your goals are and we'll get there!

I had my first lesson today and I was very nervous to say the least. Paola was very understanding and made it a fun first session. I am looking forward to our next online class!
