Hello!!! I am very pleased to be able to share my passion for Spanish with my students. I live in Melbourne and came from Colombia with the desire to make a cultural exchange enriching. I focus on fulfilling each person's needs, by identifying which platform (lessons) is the most suitable to you, until you gain the highest level of Spanish you want and you need, while you enjoy and are entertained. ;) As an advanced teacher of Spanish, I accompany the apprenticeship of beginner, intermediated, or advanced, including class groups of more than two people. I would be happy to know about you and what motivates you to improve your Spanish level.
In each meeting, we will share those topics that you like the most. About me, I tell you that I am passionate about music, cinema, and different cultures. I love chocolates, dogs, sharing with other people, and dancing salsa. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to read and I look forward to seeing you soon!
My experience in teaching Spanish came about in Melbourne, while working for a language exchange event, where I realized I could help others enhance their skills in my native language. Since then, I have worked providing private Spanish lessons in Melbourne and other cities in Australia.
I teach communications courses and managing a printed and online magazine for a university in Colombia, both for Spanish speakers. I have been a journalist, coordinator, and editor of Spanish content for more than 14 years in Colombia, for printed publications and digital media. I have a bachelor's degree in Radio and Television Production and Direction, and a master's degree in Corporate Communication, Protocol, and Events.
Cancellation of a lesson can be made up until one hour and a half prior to the agreed time.

Milena is a very professional person, very dedicated and helpful. She will guide you through any difficulties you may face and won't stop until you have finally overcome them.
I highly recommend her. She has a beautiful positive attitude, she is very intelligent and patient with her students. :)
I have known Milena for many years! She started teaching Spanish to me and then we became friends. She is very dedicated, enthusiastic and empathetic. She is great at helping new students to gain confidence while they start their learning journey and challenging those at a more advance level with engaging activities. She has many years of experience teaching not only languages but also music (guitar). Whatever level you are at, I absolutely recommend her!
Milena is a wonderful teacher with a natural talent and flair for teaching and for making customisable lessons that are exciting, unpredictable and most importantly effective. Milena is excellent at assessing your ability as a student; including determining what your blind spots are and developing a program to help you advance as a student. Milena is very creative and always provides a fun and interactive classes, which are challenging (in the best possible way) and always interesting. Milena will immerse you in Colombian culture and show you traditions and modern events, interviews and other material in Spain and throughout Latin America that will only grow your love of the language and ensure you want to continue to improve as a speaker of the beautiful language. I can say without hesitation that I have become more fluent in Spanish because of Milena and her dedication, commitment and rare gift for teaching. Milena is always super patient and friendly and reassuring. She has a great sense of humour also, which makes the classes fun and go by really quickly. Milena is a special teacher and you will notice very quickly how much you're improving as a result of having lessons with her. You will need to work of course, but Milena is a great guide for your journey towards Spanish fluency.
Nancy Milena is a really good teacher and a wonderful person.
