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.

Mi primera lección con Mari
Sólo hemos hablado 15 minutos, pero Mari parece una profesora muy divertida y con mucha ganas de crear un curso de lengua española a medida de cada estudiante. Aunque si creo che lo más importante para aprender es hablar el idioma extranjero, Mari puedes ayudar en caso de necesidad porque habla italiano muy bien. Super recomendada!
Professional Courses: Spanish - 15' - Spanish adapted course
Great lesson, Maria is a very creative teacher, we watched together some videos and so I was able to ask her when I didn't understand something. We discussed Halloween and we the traditions of Mexico during that time of the year. Muchas gracias, nos vemos!

Me gustò mucho la clase
Mr gustò verdaderamente mucho la clase con Maria Garcia, aunque fue soltamente de 15 minutos ella me pudo decir muchas cosas interesantes, come la diferencia entre "hubiera sido" y "habria sido". He disfrutado mucho de nuestra charla, espero de verte pronto!
