My name is Jorge Muñoz Correa. I'm 35 years old and I'm from Medellìn, Colombia. I studied Spanish and Literature Teaching and I graduated in January 2017. I've been a teacher since 2011, starting by teaching French, English and Spanish in high school for about 4 years. In 2016, I taught English at an academy of languages for one year and since then I've been working as a Spanish teacher as a second language in both face-to-face and virtual modalities, which has been a really great experience since I've had the opportunity to share my language with others and transmit my passion for my mother tongue and the magic of the latin spanish, which involves our same magic culture.
I'm a kind, patient and easy-going person, who always tries to do everything as good as possible, with eagerness, passion and fun. My purpose in life is to make people feel good around me and teaching is, for me, one of the best ways to achieve it.
My teaching method consists on teaching in context, using the language in real situations, asking students about their lives, experiences and expectations in order to make them find out the real usage of language, always trying to elicit useful information through questions, using it to create a nice speaking environment and make them feel confident to do it.
I think I’m a good listener, because I like to listen to, and I’m also good at asking questions, which is for me one of the best teaching methods. This, combined with my patience and kindness, makes a great recipe for a nice learning environment.
