Kia Ora Nueva Zelanda!
My name is Felipe. Born and raised in Colombia, I lived in Spain for twelve years until December last year, when I moved to New Zealand. Having lived in two countries on both sides of the Atlantic has made me familiar with both Latin American and Spanish cultures.
I am passionate about learning languages since I started learning English at the age of 11. Years later I realized I could help other Spanish speakers learn English with the same strategies I used in my own learning process. What I thought was going to be a part-time stint to pay for my studies ended up becoming my passion and now itâ€™s been 15 years since I started teaching English.
I have helped people from different ages, levels and backgrounds pass English proficiency exams and pass job interviews in English. And recently Iâ€™ve started doing the same for English speakers who want to learn Spanish.
If you're reading this, chances are you're interested in improving your Spanish communication skills. If that's the case, look no further!
Get in touch with me for a free trial lesson. I'll be glad to help you on your journey to Spanish fluency.
I have a BA in Education with a minor on Foreign Languages as well as a Masterâ€™s Degree in Neuropsychology and Education. Likewise, I have studies in Business and Marketing, which means I can help people who are interested in learning Spanish with a business focus.
I've taught English to Spanish speakers since 2005. I've taught in language schools and also as a Primary teacher in Colombia and Spain. In 2014 I became a full-time online English tutor. In 2019 started teaching Spanish to English speakers in Spain and, more recently, to a Kiwi woman living in Melbourne.
I enjoy travelling, reading, watching TV and photography.
