Carmen is a Spanish tutor and translator who originated from the small and beautiful country of Uruguay, in South America where she was an ESOL teacher. She has been in the teaching profession for over 25 years and holds a Level 5 New Zealand Adult Education Certificate. She is passionate about languages and teaching, and absolutely loves her job.
Her bubbly and friendly personality has helped her create a fantastic rapport with her students. Carmen’s goal is to generate a dynamic classroom environment where she can share her culture, make everyone learn, understanding the different backgrounds and learning skills of each student, while reassuring them that their ability to learn is not tied to age.
When it comes to the reasons why people should learn a language, Carmen thinks it opens many doors, enriches lives, but especially when you travel and visit places she feels that that “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”.
