“When I was a student, what I needed most was a teacher who not only cared about my grades, but about me as a person too. I want to be the teacher that I never had; a teacher who is there to guide their students in their education, personal wellbeing and self development. Being a good student starts with feeling good about yourself. I never want any of my students to leave my classroom feeling differently.”

“To say that I teach English would be reductive, actually I teach and study various languages for I am constantly fascinated by the world of linguistic communication and by the identity of a people related to it.”

“I hope to inspire my young students to open their minds not only to a new language, but also to the culture and people that speak it. That English isn’t reserved exclusively for Western-style cowboys, or Hollywood blondes, anyone can speak it and should be encouraged to learn without feeling ashamed of the learning process throughout.”

Fall 2017 – Spring 2018

Miami, Florida

“I teach because I see how learning a new language fits into people’s dreams. Without a language teacher, their dreams would be impossible, be it the American dream for an immigrant or a dream university for an international student. Additionally, I’m fascinated by the process of language learning and development of cultural awareness. Besides, teaching in general is just plain rewarding.”

Bocairent, Spain

“I’ve had plenty of mediocre instructors in my life—individuals who did just enough to get by and collect a paycheck. But every so often, I was blessed with a professional who brought passion and life to the classroom. They made me care about learning because I knew they cared. I want to project that same charisma to future generations. That’s why I teach.”

Madrid, Spain

“As contradictory as it may sound, I am teaching abroad for the opportunity to learn — learn about a culture that is different than my own; learn a foreign language that was never formally taught to me; and most importantly, I think, learn about myself. How will I adjust and adapt to a different way of life? What will this foreign lifestyle teach me about my upbringing, my own culture, and my own use of language?”

“I want to be the point of exposure to the US for students who may not have had that chance.  I was always fascinated by other places as a kid but never got the chance to leave the United States. When I finally did, my mind was blown.”

“I am inspired by my students and I enjoy sharing the Arabian culture with them. I teach to meet the needs of my students and enjoy creating interactive lessons to meet those needs.”

Jose Carrasco

“I teach to show kids what they already know—  that they can do it.”
