Teacher Testimonial

My name is Maria Elena Garcia and I am super excited about being part of the EC Montreal teaching team. I was born in Quito, Ecuador a beautiful city in the middle of the Andes mountains and I moved to Montreal this past August.

I have always been interested in languages and cultures and my first study abroad experience was when I received a full scholarship to attend a higher-education institution in the United States. I completed a double major degree in Communication Leadership and International Relations and a couple years later a Masters in Management. Immediately after college, I started working for a financial consulting firm and taught ESL classes as a volunteer in my community. I lived and worked in the USA for a total of ten and a half years.

My passion for travelling and my experience tutoring languages to foreigners inspired me to make a career change back in 2010. I traveled to Ecuador to complete a Certificate of English Teaching to Adults (CELTA) and taught general English and IELTS preparation courses at a large university there for three years. I also was part of the academic support staff at the university where I developed exams and assessed students’ speaking skills.

What I love about teaching is being able to help students experience all aspects of the language and prepare them for real life situations where they can interact with confidence. Through teaching, I have seen students reach their professional and personal goals and that is priceless!

Why Montreal you might ask? Well, I had always been intrigued as to what teaching and living in a French-speaking city would be like, so I decided to immigrate to Canada. I moved to Montreal three weeks ago and I am enjoying every minute of it. I look forward to meeting people from different cultures and participating in festivals and art-related activities in this wonderful city. I speak Spanish, English, and French and I am into eating healthy, growing spiritually, art, travelling, learning languages, fashion, and of course, salsa dancing!
