Emily Diaz is originally from Peru. Her background is in Economic Sciences with broad experience in Banks and Financial Institutions. Since 2017 she has been working in her other passion, teaching Spanish. Teaching represents an exciting experience in her professional life. As a Spanish teacher, she had the opportunity to teach her mother language in colleges and schools, interacting with students of different ages and backgrounds.
Throughout these years, her core belief as a teacher is: “lead a class makes me as much a learner as my students.” She likes to teach adapting the course to the student learning style, encouraging students to take ownership of their learning through actively participating in class, doing their best, and making mistakes because it is the best way to learn. She considers that this approach helps students to develop their full potential in the class. In the classroom, she aspires to balance theory, practice, and humour to capture students’ interest and instill a passion for learning the Spanish language and culture. She strives to impart knowledge, and in this way, to foster a meaningful exchange of ideas to provide the student with a comprehensive Spanish learning experience.
