I enjoy hiking, watching psychological thrillers, reading novels, spending time with my family, dancing, singing, traveling (especially to the beach) and meditating. However, my biggest passion is teaching English. I love meeting and interacting with people from all over the world. I also love sharing my knowledge and helping my students achieve their goals. The smiles on their faces and their expressions of joy are just priceless. In fact, I think these are my most important achievements as a tutor; showing my students everything they are capable of and changing the negative opinion that some of them have about learning English . After having a few classes with me, they realize how useful English is and how easy and fun it is to learn it; it’s just a matter of using the right strategies and practicing them regularly. After more than 5 years of experience as an English teacher, I came to the conclusion that the most effective techniques for learning English are; engaging students in meaningful activities, that is to say, activities based on topics they are truly interested in and activities that have real communicative purposes. For example, introducing their favorite actor or actress, movie, book, singer, band, video game, meal...In addition to meaningful activities, I like using games in my classes. Everybody likes to play, even adults! Games are a fun way to memorize vocabulary and simple or complex grammar structures. I am a very nice, warm and patient person. I am also kind, funny, respectful and tolerant. I see mistakes as opportunities to improve and I always encourage my students to go beyond them in order to reach success.
Mr. Malu is a very kindly and carefully teacher.

Today we talk about what we will do in summertime. It's really pleasure to have a course with you. I also learn a lot of vocabularies about summer season and the activities in Columbia. :)
