Presentation

I’m Ratiba, I’m Canadian, and I have been living in Spain since May 2017. I have a mixed background, from my name to my birth location. I have a TESOL certificate and have taught English and French, private and group conversation classes online for 6 year. I have also taught private French lessons to teenagers in my city and French group conversation classes at a language school for newly arrived immigrants. I speak and write English and French. I also speak Papiamento; the native language of the island of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles. At the moment, I am learning Spanish and enjoying it...

I’m Ratiba, I’m Canadian, and I have been living in Spain since May 2017. I have a mixed background, from my name to my birth location. I have a TESOL certificate and have taught English and French, private and group conversation classes online for 6 year. I have also taught private French lessons to teenagers in my city and French group conversation classes at a language school for newly arrived immigrants. I speak and write English and French. I also speak Papiamento; the native language of the island of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles. At the moment, I am learning Spanish and enjoying it very much. I love traveling, and teaching online makes me travel and discover so much without leaving my home. I would be delighted to talk with you about any topic or any interest you have. My aim is to help you with your French or English conversation skills. I can assist you with vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and sentence building. When teaching, I always try to cultivate the student’s curiosity and help them grow intellectually. I think it’s important to reward, empower, encourage and motivate them. I engage students by being more personal and I try to create a relationship with them that promotes exchange. I am very punctual and always give my best to each student. My lessons will be challenging yet fun, in a relaxed atmosphere, and where you will do most of the talking. I look forward to meeting you!
