I started teaching ten years ago and I was hooked on this profession, I discovered my vocation. The passion for teaching Spanish led me to Manchester, where I was teaching at the Cervantes Institute. A few years later I decided to come to AIL Malaga to live in one of the Mediterranean paradises.
I like to be a teacher because, I enjoy helping others to learn and I’m keen into making the Spanish lessons useful for the students by adapting my methodology as much as possible to the students’ needs.
I’m very enthusiastic with my work and I am also a perfectionist. During my free time I like going to the cinema and read Spanish teaching article. I love Malaga for its cultural diversity, the really pleasant climate and the Mediterranean dishes.
I like to work in AIL Málaga because the atmosphere is very welcoming. I love to teach new grammar structures and then practice them speaking with fun exercises.
I am an open minded and friendly person. During my free time I like going jogging and watching Real Madrid’s games. I really like Malaga for its vast history, the simplicity of the people and varied leisure options.
Meet the student care team
I consider myself as friendly guy who loves meeting people from all places. I really enjoy helping our students to make their stay unforgettable. I am very passionate about practicing tennis and watching football matches. My favorite football team is Real Madrid. Even though I am a big fan of Spanish food (paella, tortilla, flamenquín…), pizza Carbonara is always the first option when I want to treat myself.
My name is Pina, I’m from the south of Italy (the italian Andalucía :-)). I have always loved Spain and since I have studied In the University of Complutense in Madrid I wanted to continue living in Spain. I moved from Madrid to Málaga because I wanted to discover a new city and have new experiences. I have always felt attracted to Andalusian culture, Flamenco, the Arabian style of its historical past, the joy of its inhabitants and the constantly sunny climate of the south made me choose Malaga as a new destination.
I’m very happy to work in AIL Malaga because it gives me the opportunity to meet many people, each with their own story. Every day is a different “movie” and I learn new things.
My main hobby is music. I am a singer and dancer of traditional music in southern Italy. Before coming to Málaga, I used to participate with my group in international folk festivals all over Italy. When I’m not working at school, I like doing excursions to discover new parts of this beautiful city, visit museums, go to the beach and playing my guitar!
I have to say that from the beginning of my internship I feel part of this language school’s family. I’ve learned a lot and I really appreciate the friendly environment, team work, creativity and the whole idea of noche de copas in which we go out with our students to know them better and practice Spanish. Join us partying!
I am an active and friendly person and a movie maniac, few of my favorite ones are: Godfather, The Departed, The Shutter Island, Warrior. I like practicing various sports such as taebo, tabata, yoga, wakeboarding, swimming, scuba diving and more. My great passions are also traveling, meeting new people, spending time with my family and friends and also enjoying things which life offers us.
I am a very creative person so the majority of my hobbies are different forms of artistic expression – whether it´s traditional outlets such as drawing and painting or methods more related to people such as fashion and make-up.
I believe everyone should encourage themselves to try new things, so I am very excited to meet people, improve my language skills and explore different places while working here in Málaga.
