MEET YOUR TEACHER
Teaching languages is Amanda’s passion. She obtained a degree in Psychology and certificates for teaching Spanish as a foreign language. Besides, she is a certified DELE examiner for the levels A1 and A2. In the last few years, she has been working as a language teacher for Spanish and English in Turkey, Vietnam and Spain. Since 2017, Amanda is teaching Spanish at FU International Academy Tenerife.
She speaks these languages:
I obtained a degree in Psychology at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and an HNC in Human Resource Management at the Edinburgh College.
I received a Specialized Spanish Teacher certification by International House Madrid and a TEFL certificate by Tefl.org.uk. I’m also a certified DELE examiner for the levels A1-A2.
As well as a Spanish teacher, I’m a yoga instructor. I love practicing yoga and sharing my passion with other people.
I have vast experience teaching Spanish and English as foreign languages. I worked as an English and Spanish teacher in Istanbul for 6 months. I taught children in kindergartens but also adults in private schools. After this beautiful experience in Istanbul, I moved to Hanoi, where I lived and worked for a year. In Hanoi, I had the opportunity to work with large groups (30-40 students) in public schools. After that, I came to the Canary Islands and fell in love with Tenerife. In 2017, I started working at FU International Academy and I can only say that I couldn’t be happier.
Me encantaría poder teletransportarme tanto en espacio como en el tiempo, es decir, podría desplazarme a cualquier lugar y momento con un solo movimiento. ¿Por qué? Porque viajar y la historia son mis grandes pasiones y con este superpoder podría visitar muchos lugares y épocas superchachis.
ENG: What superpower would you like to have? I would love to be able to teleport through both space and time, in other words, I could reach any location and era in the same move. Why? Because I love traveling and history and with this superpower I could go to so many cool places and eras.
Creo que volvería como una libélula. Me siento muy identificada con sus características: libre, cambiante y equilibrada.
ENG: If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what would you want to be and why?I think I would come back as a dragonfly. I very much identify with its attributes: free, changing and balanced.
Siempre (o casi siempre) llevo el bañador en la mochila. Me encanta el agua, así que si estoy cerca del mar, un río o un lago, siempre es un buen momento para pegarme un chapuzón.
ENG: Something you always carry with you. (Your cell phone doesn’t count ;))? I always (or almost always) carry my swimsuit with me. I love water, so if there’s a beach, a river or a lake nearby, it’s always a good moment to dip in.
