About meHello, My name is Ana Karina Orellana. I am originally from Guadalajara, Mexico. I have lived in three different countries, hence the reason why I speak three languages. I have lived in Mexico City as well, United States and France. I love learning languages because you can connect with so many more people. It is as if your world gets so much bigger! I love teaching, I have actually taught ever since I was in Junior High and more formally at the age of 21. I have pursued different goal through my life but one thing that I have been consistent at is teaching a language. Another activity I enjoy doing is running and triathlon. I am a three times Boston Qualifier and Triathlon Age Group World Championships 2019 Qualifier. I love animal, specially dogs. I have a rescue dog "Bimba" and "Duquelino" it is a Brittany Spanish. I am thrilled to get to know you and learn more about you! I have been a tutor for more than 5 years now. I went to La Sorbonne to study french and lived in France for about 4 years. I have worked for different clients and one language company named Inlingua where I had the chance to teach the three languages to business men at Uniliver HQ, BMW HQ, Procter and Gamble HQ, Volvo HQ, BP and many more. I also taught home makers, College and graduate students and previously kids and teenagers. I use a method which consists on having the student to talk as much as possible so that He or She can be fluent as fast as possible. The purpose in most classes depending on the level is to have the student talk more than the instructor. The more the student speaks the more the student feels comfortable expressing what he or she has learned and will even realize by themselves the mistakes they are making or could make before even expressing it. I also focus on the students' needs or objectives. Sometimes that might be the TOEFL or a CEF exam or to get a job in a different country. I am very open to adjusting the teaching method that would be more appropriate for you. My teaching approach is by asking you questions but preparing you to answer them beforehand so you can speak as much as possible and as quick as possible even when making mistakes you don't make them over time. I use skype or google hangouts, we share the screen and you can also see and hear how words are to be pronounced. I also use videos, songs, and weekly assignments so your learning could also be quicker and effective!
