María Alejandra -  InstructorMF

Hola! I am Maria-Alejandra Faria. I am from Venezuela and I have lived in many parts of the world. In 2015 I became a Permanent Resident in Victoria, Canada. I am a marine biologist with postgraduate studies in Education and Innovation.  I enjoy the sea, as well as exploring and coaching all sort of skills: from languages to Latin dance and marine conservation.  I have over 15 years experience teaching languages in places such as Canada, France, Madagascar, Maldives, and in sailing vessels. I enjoy teaching about the Spanish speaking cultures as much as  learning from my students. My classes are based on the multiple intelligences theory and on the significative learning approach. I speak English, French and Spanish
