AMALIA GAVIÑA, MA.
Welcome to Linguapaths
Being a descendant of Europeans who emigrated to Argentina many years ago, I grew up in an environment immersed in everything that was foreign: my grandmother’s stories about her country of origin, magazines and books in other languages, travel stories and films in their original version. Thus, my curiosity and interest in foreign languages and cultures was fed from a very young age. After a few years, international exams and a stay in the US in between, convinced me that my path was towards teaching languages.
Due to the great demand for English teachers that there was and still is in my country, when I became a student at the Instituto Superior del Profesorado, almost simultaneously, I also became a teacher and that has given me invaluable experiences.
Throughout my extensive career, I have taught English courses in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, companies, universities, government agencies, public institutions and associations, both in Argentina and Spain. In addition, I have done English-Spanish/Spanish-English translation work and given Spanish courses for foreigners in companies, NGOs and universities.
Over time, my role as a teacher has transitioned to that of a coach, someone who encourages and guides her students by working on learning strategies and fostering their autonomy as learners with unique paths/styles.
I firmly believe in the importance of enjoying learning and generating motivation in the classroom. To do this, I use a wide variety of teaching materials and try to take into account the preferences of each student to select relevant topics.
Other pillars that currently support my methodology have to do with positive psychology and conscious learning, taking into account that the student’s level of attention in class is essential to guarantee success in any type of learning. To obtain the desired results, I use approaches based on projects and significant tasks framed in real contexts that generate creativity and action.
I try to establish an authentic connection with each student and collaborate together in order to co-construct their learning process. That is why communication is permanent and as fluid as possible with all of them.
