  • Description

    We are Marcel (32) and Miranda (30). We have traveling and working experience in different countries. At the moment we are on a South American adventure. From January until May we have worked as English teachers in Colombia. We both are Spanish learners and enjoy a basic conversation.

    Miranda: "I have a Bachelor in Social work and Art Therapy. I have worked with children of all ages in a therapeutic and social setting. I love to be creative in all types of art, painting, drawing, making clothing and much more. During my travels I keep an art journal. Besides being a profesional therapist I've been teaching art to groups of childeren and recently English in Colombia. l also like to play sports such as volleyball, surfing and yoga. I would describe myself as easy going, a fast practical learner, open minded and creative.

    Marcel: "I am a graphic- and webdesigner with a marketing background. I can help you with (online) marketing, social media handling, creating websites (wordpress), writing and translating texts and designing tasks.
    I have over 15 years of teaching experience in different fields as well. With the last years being focussed on teaching English and Dutch as a second language. I love to teach and be creative. I like to play football, cycle and play games like chess and poker. I would describe myself as socially active, patient, a conceptual and creative thinker. I love to learn and experience new things and I like a good converstation. Preferably with a nice cup of coffee since I'm a real coffee lover."
