Biography
My name is Mari Carmen García Castaño, I am from south Spain but since January 2017 I am living in Liverpool, where i decided to continue my career and professional development as a MFL teacher. Right now, and just for three months I am living in Alaska, while collaborating with the Foreign languages department of Fairbanks University.

I've always been really interested by foreign languages and cultures so I decided what i wanted to study and I moved to Granada where I studied at Granada University for four years. I have a Degree in Modern Foreign Languages and Literature where my Maior language was Italian and my second language was French. I got honors in Romance languages and I passed all my exams with great qualifications. But to improve my level and know more about these countries, and their cultures I decided to go to live in Italy twice first Sardinia and then Florence, where I study for a year at Università di Firenze, so I am really familiar with the country and the Italian community. I also lived and worked in Lausanne where I improved my french level and get to know a bit better their culture.

I have an International Master Degree in Teaching Spanish language, literature and culture from Salamanca University and FIDESCU. I also got a Diploma in Design of new e-learning materials from International Isabel I de Castilla University, and I juts got my Diploma of Spanish as a Second Language (DELE) from instituto Cervantes so I can participate, prepare students, and evaluate at the DELE offical sessions. Right now I am working as a self-employed teacher, doing private presence and online languages courses in Italian, Spanish and French.

I started working when i was just 16 years old, tutoring and working with primary and secondary aged children, organizing daily activities, and keeping students organised and controlled. While I was living and studying in Florence for a year I did two Spanish courses where I had to produce and organise a class of young people aged 18-28. I have a lot of passion for the teaching profession. I have gained a wide range of skills, such as having strong knowledge of particular subjects areas related to Italian, Spanish, French and English language (history, literature, music, art).
I am an expert at establishing clear objectives for each lesson and then working to meet those specific goals.
I am very excited at the prospect of having a long lasting impact on the lives of those I teach, and want to be a teacher that my students remember and cherish forever. I never underestimate the potential of my students and monitor them very closely for any signs that may demonstrate their ability or interest in a particular subject

I know all learners are different, which means that everyone has different learning experiences and different learning styles, that's why I adjuts to my students' goals and needs to ensure all of them are satisfied at the end of their course, and that their language learning experience with me is a positive one.
