My father gave me the name of Javier, that's easy to pronounce if you are a Spanish speaker otherwise you might have a little bit of struggle. I'm 22 years old, I was born and raise in Peru until 9 years old before coming to Montreal, Canada. Since then, I live in the same city but in summer I prefer to travel the world. I'm actually working as a French teacher in different high schools and I'm still studying in the same field. Right now, I'm at my last year of my bachelor degree in teaching French as second language in the university of Quebec at Montreal also known as UQAM.
I'm passionate about traveling since I was 16 years old, I had the opportunities of visiting different countries around South America and Africa but, this time, I would like to explore Canada. I like to spend my days off reading books, catching up with my friends around a coffee, take different classes of urban dances (hip-hop, afrohouse, krump) and going to the gym. I consider myself as a huge fan of art but I prefer three specific field : Dancing, photography and ancient/modern painting.
Furthermore, teaching is a big part of my life, I really think that I found sometime that gives me a boost every morning and keeps me motivated. If I learned something important in my profession, it's the fact that we can learn way more by listening people than talking.
Traveling as a teacher is my life goal. I would like to travel the world with the purpose of helping students to improve their foreign language and their professional carrier.
This is not my first time using WORKAWAY, I used it a lot travelling around Brazil in summer 2016, Costa Rica, South Africa, Morocco and Costa Rica but, if needed, I can gave you every host references.
I'm able to speak and write in four languages, I'm able to teach them all and, in a different perspective, I could give Bachata classes because I consider myself good enough to teach it. I'm very curious as a person, I might get involve in fields that I never experienced it before but I would still give it a try because I love to challenge myself.
More details about my language interests
I'm french teacher in high school. I could help you to improve your french, spanish or portuguese.
I'm planning to travel to Vancouver island (the west coast precisely) because I miss surfing so bad... I always heard beautiful comments about the wildlife in BC and I can't wait to see it myself!
On the other hand, my mom taught me how to cook when I was 10yo and, since then, I improve my cooking skills. Definitely, not a CHEF cook and that's why I would like to learn more about food.
