Hi there! I’m Carolina or Carol, like my loved ones call me, the teacher at Connect with Spanish. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I’ve lived most of my life although I’ve been travelling quite a lot lately. I’m passionate about dancing tango, travelling and I also love drinking ‘mate’, our national beverage.
In 2010 I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in teaching English as a foreign language that has made me connect with this rewarding profession. I’ve taught English for over 8 years now, in primary and secondary schools in Buenos Aires as well as at the university level.
In 2015 I moved to Australia where I lived for one year. Living and working abroad has sparked my love and passion to start teaching my mother tongue, Spanish. I’ve graduated with a Diploma in Teaching Spanish as a second and foreign language from UTN (National Technological University) and I am constantly doing training couses.
Having experienced the traditional teaching methodology as well as online learning, I can say that with the second one, language learners are able to keep their motivation always up and accomplish their goals faster. Our lessons will be all about getting you ready to face the everyday matters of your new Spanish journey because I know myself how it feels like to learn a foreign language and the challenges one has to overcome along the way.
I welcome you to this awesome journey!
What Students Say About Me…
I moved to Argentina for work knowing 0% Spanish and Carolina was AMAZING! She came up with a structured lesson plan for me, and was super accommodating. She made hard terms easy to understand, was super patient with me, and turned into an amazing friend! Lessons felt so fun with her, and I truly felt like I learned so much from her. I love the times we would meet up for coffee and meals, and she showed me a true “behind the scenes” of what it is like to really live in Buenos Aires. I highly recommend her to all interested in learning Spanish! She is truly wonderful. Muchas gracias por la buena onda!!!!Cathy Yu
Carolina is a bright person and creative thinker and this comes through in her engaging and upbeat lessons. Her English is like a native speaker so nothing is lost in translation! Carolina’s own confidence and positivity is contagious – my daughters understand a lot of Spanish but like to reply in English. I was very surprised with the amount of Spanish they came out with from their first lesson with Carolina – what I put it down to is that her lessons are very dynamic and the girls forget their shyness in the fun of it all! Building on the success we have witnessed with our girls lessons, their father and I are looking forward to starting our own lessons with Carolina in the near future.Rachel Dreyer
