Mercedes English and Spanish teacher for children. Online or face to face classes

Methodology

Dear Parents,
I am a childcare provider, who absolutely loves caring for children. I have many years of experience in this field and trusted by parents.
I use games, activities, and projects as my main method of teaching, as I’m able to give the children a more 1-1 approach, which has had an excellent impact on the children’s curiosity and self-confidence. I strongly believe every single child is different, and for this reason, I am a big fan of alternative methods of teaching, which respect individuality and encourage children to listen and discover their inner desires. My attitude is proactive at all times with a strong focus on young learners’ safety and well being.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Queridos padres y madres,
Doy clases de español o inglés. Tengo varios años de experiencia en esta labor con una devolución siempre afectiva y positiva de los padres.
Juegos, actividades y proyectos son los principales métodos que empleo. Mi actitud es proactiva con fuerte hincapié en el bienestar, el aprendizaje y el progreso de niños y niñas. Las clases personalizadas o en grupos reducidos tienen un excelente resultado puesto que incentivan la curiosidad y la creatividad, siendo los mismos pequeños quienes descubren sus gustos y talentos generando de esta manera una autoestima sólida. Soy una gran convencida que cada individuo es único y, por lo tanto, debe haber una enseñanza más enfocada a las necesidades y particularidades individuales. Consecuentemente, pongo en práctica algunas herramientas básicas de educaciones alternativas. Fomentar desde una edad temprana el desarrollo de nuestras capacidades y deseos conlleva mayores probabilidades de ser adultos felices e íntegros.

Experience

I studied law in Argentina, but once obtained my degree I realised it wasn’t what I really wanted to do. I traveled abroad, where I lived in Scotland for a long period and soon after when I went back to my hometown, I discovered my passion for working with children. I got the opportunity to work as an English Teacher and Playworker, in a School which follows Reggio Emilia philosophy and it was an outstanding experience. I learned a lot of tips and tools for working with young learners as well as being part of a team. Moreover, we used to work together on different projects so these are related to each other in the subjects what makes, the most sense for kids.
After that, I came back to Edinburgh. I’m currently studying English and working part-time for an agency which sends me throughout Edinburgh to different nurseries looking after children.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Estudié abogacía en Argentina pero, una vez terminada la carrera de grado, sabía que no era lo que realmente me apasionaba. Luego realice un viaje, viví -entre otros sitios- un largo período en Escocia y, una vez que regresé a mi tierra natal, en mi ciudad Bahia Blanca, tuve la oportunidad de trabajar como maestra de inglés y talleres lúdicos y didácticos en una escuela primaria que sigue la corriente educativa y alternativa Reggio Emilia. La experiencia fue tan gratificante que en ese mismo momento descubrí cuánto disfruto de la labor docente. No solo tuve visión de saber que quiero trabajar con infantes, sino que también pude aprender mucho del trabajo en equipo debido a que los proyectos dentro de estas escuelas son articulados entre las distintas áreas o materias, generando así una total coherencia y mayor facilidad y ductilidad en el aprendizaje. Naturalmente, empleo muchas herramientas y conceptos aprendidos durante la experiencia señalada.

Positive and active at all times with a strong focus on children’s safety and well being. Skilled in playing, creating fun, engaging and educational activities.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
ENGLISH-SPANISH TEACHER
(february 2017 - december 2018)

English teacher at “Puerto del Sur” school located in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. I worked for two years in primary school and kindergarten. This school follows Emilia Reggio Approach (an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge.). I teach through projects and games where they can find more logical the language. The lessons embraces a wide range of activities: they worked in groups or individually and they do it in a joyful way, cooperating each other to achieve a particular purpose or goal.


Private English lessons at home. One to one tuition, helping with their homework, learning new content and playing in English language. I’ve got kids from 3 years old to 12 years old. In these classes the bond between teacher and student could be stronger and also, the learning process is faster.

Currently working at two different places Butterfly Personnel, since February 2019. It’s an agency that sends me throughout Edinburgh to different nurseries as well as babysitter hours. Also Skool is Out, which is an after school club.
