Subject

Spanish

Spanish lessons for children

I have teach children between 6 and 12 years. I like to work with comics, poems and drama-exercices and tongue-twisters

Intensive Spanish

I usually teach listening, conversation, grammar and writing skills through one activity i.e. the student has to watch a movie before the class, write an essay about the movie, and send it to me before the class. Then I will correct it. So, in the class, we will talk about the movie a, difficulties, vocabulary, etc.

Spanish for beginners

Conversational Spanish

I try to encourage beginners students through books and songs. I have grammar files to share with them

Spanish for traveling

I prefer to focus my classes in conversational exercices since I include grammar and pronuntation explanations and corrections

Reading and writing Spanish

I love travelling and I know perfectly what is important to learn before travelling

Understanding Spanish movies

I consider fundamental that students read in Spanish regularly: poems, novels or stories. So I recomend them books and I ask essays about the readings in order to practice vocabulary and orthography

Spanish lifestyle and culture

I like working the listening skills through films since is funny or interesting way of learning

About Tutor

I am a Spanish, from Madrid. I am 26 years old Marine Biologist. Teaching Spanish through internet could be the best way to easily reach as many students as possible, and pass on my culture. It is also a good starter for my professional teacher career, while ending my International MSc studies .Currently I live in France, and I will travel between several universities and countries, for the next two years.

Experience

I’m certified Spanish as a foreign language teacher. During the last two years, I travelled and worked as biologist tutor, and as well as Spanish tutor, both in France and Spain. I am teaching Spanish through Skype since last summer.

Teaching Approach

I enjoy finding out all little cultural subtleties hidden behind expressions, music, poetry, novels, movies, and shows. According to my own experience, joining studies and pleasure, is the best way of teaching a new language.
Therefore my teaching method is based in this principle, use art works from my culture in order to teach and convey my mother tongue.
