About Tutor

I am a native Spanish teacher with a degree in advertising and marketing. I have extensive experience working as a Spanish teacher in Spain and also in England and Italy (freelance). During the last two years, I have been teaching Spanish as a foreign language to a different range of levels (A1- C2) and ages to speakers of other languages, helping them to build confidence and develop the skills that they need to have real conversations in the real world.

Experience

Work experience:

• Spanish teacher at Language Academy (“Viva la lengua”, Alicante). In “Viva la lengua”, we offer courses base on a learning plan that includes required objectives for each level according to The Common European Framework of Reference for Language. These objectives include: grammar, vocabulary, speaking, reading,writing and common expressions. I offer conversational lessons, intensive and semi-intensive courses. Levels A1-C2. (2016 – Currently).

• Freelance: Private and group lessons (Spain, Italy and England).

• Online teacher: Two years of experience working in online platforms like Italki (https://www.italki.com/teacher/4167627) and Lingoda (2017- Currently).

Teaching Approach

My lessons will always focus on your needs: CONVERSATION: simulating job interviews; talking about a topic you like; discussing the news… whatever you want! READING: if you want to improve your reading comprehension, I will propose texts we can read together. I also can correct your pronunciation, GRAMMAR.

I will make you work with the 4 skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing as this is the only way to become communicatively competent in a foreign language.

- I like to use many different and visual materials like videos, audios, many PDF´s, books and online exercises.
- DELE exams.
