My name is Rodrigo. I come from Colombia, a vast South American country known for its
beautiful landscapes, cultural and gastronomic richness, and linguistic diversity.
I am a teacher of Modern languages from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (Bogotá) and I also
hold a qualification in the teaching of Spanish from Instituto Caro y Cuervo, one of the oldest
and most prestigious institutions of the Americas aimed at researching and teaching the
Spanish language of Colombia, as well as its literatures, history, and cultures.
I am passionate about travelling and language teaching. This is why after a period of immersive
studies in the south of France in 2019, I decided to come to the UK and pursue my master’s
degree in Language and Cultural Diversity at King’s College London.
After graduation, I was granted my stay in the UK, which has enabled me to have invaluable
experience of teaching English, French and Spanish — both on an online and face-to-face basis
— to adults from different sociocultural and sociolinguistic backgrounds. These include people
from South Korea, Italy, England, Portugal, Canada, Japan, and Brazil amongst many others.
Professionally, I follow the communicative approach. This means that in my lessons, you will be
involved in real-life communicative situations, which will help you build strategies for language
acquisition while having fun.
My other passions include attending and reading about theatre plays, watching series and
