I qualified as a Spanish Language Teacher in September 1986 and began my professional career working for “Colegio Cervantes” in Spain. During that years I became increasingly experienced dealing with students of all ages and levels. I was teaching there for eight years, in 1998 I decided to move in London and here I started teaching from 2000, working with youth and adults.
Since 2000 I have joined a few Language Agencies which I am collaborating still. During these years I have consolidated my skills and knowledge.
My teaching methodology combines different pedagogical techniques, centered on a communicative approach, in order to reach every kind of learner. My goal is to equip you with the skills and concepts necessary to feel comfortable understanding others and making yourself understood in any Spanish-speaking environment. In order to achieve this goal, I combine both theory and practice, addressing all of the linguistic and functional pragmatic aspects of the spoken language, along with key socio-cultural information essential for gaining proficiency. Grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking and vocabulary are always integrated in order to approximate the student to an authentic communicative environment.
Every lesson is independent but - as is the logical nature of any language - the use of grammar and vocabulary is cumulative and sequential from class to class.
Spanish Language private tuition, one to one and groups (2000 - present)
Private language tuition, working with young people and adults, teaching grammar and culture towards their examinations, essays or private interest.
