I’m Valeria, you can also call me Lera! After finishing my Bachelor degree in English, literature and translation in Ukraine, I decided to continue in France. 3 years later, I’ve got my Master degree in Teaching foreign languages and Language policies from the Université du Maine (France).
After gaining valuable classroom experience through my internships, I worked as language teacher with kids, teenagers and adults in Europe and Asia.
Teaching abroad helped me discover that the joy of communication goes beyond language barriers. I think that learning new language can be a great way to connect with people all over the world and understand their cultures!
I enjoy teaching and like helping my students to reach their potential. I believe that everyone can succeed in new language, we just need to find our own way to do so in a fun learning environment.
Paul James Newsham
I am 31 years old and am originally from the Lake District, North West England. I have done many things in my life from building trident nuclear submarines, working as a chef and also spending many years managing a call centre. I have always known that i have experienced privilege and been afforded opportunities.
I decided to teach because in my life i know that i have ignored and wasted a lot of opportunities, things that some people may never even get. Through teaching English i can help to develop language fluency and encourage communication skills – in order to help local people secure higher wages and more job security. I hope to help them access more opportunity themselves and take advantage of the world to a greater extent. I love it here in Mexico and want to help as many people as i can. Everyone should have access to the same opportunities that i have been blessed with so far, just like the opportunity to teach here and to become part of this wonderful culture.
I am currently 30 years old. I am also a professor in Corporate LEEX. I lived in the US for about 15 years, once I returned I took two graduates at ITSON, how to teach a foreign language, fortunately, LEEX gives me the opportunity to develop skills to teach people of all ages, since I had taught only very young children; It is a pleasure to work in LEEX and also very satisfying to provide skills for a person that are useful in a daily life.
My name is Marcelo Antillón, I am a teacher and student (as I am currently studying a college degree in law) who has had many opportunities throughout his life to learn and work in quite a few education-related workplaces. From social responsibilities management in a corporate ethics course in Monterrey, to head of volunteering in an elementary school in Madrid, to personally teaching English and Spanish to a Japanese student abroad.
These parts of my life have been eye opening, and combined with over a year of language teaching experience here at LEEX, I strive to continue learning along with my students.
