Award winning scriptwriter and PhD student offering Spanish lessons in Edinburgh region.

Methodology

As a tutor I look at the students individual needs and make a lesson plan to reach specific goals.
I like to practice vocabulary with students by discussing literature, music, film and travel destinations.
For group lessons we can put together a short play and practice by improvising or rehearsing dialogue scenes.

Background

I am a Native Spanish speaker from Mexico and have an MA in Latin American Literature and an MA in Philosophy from the Autonomous University in Barcelona. I have taught literature and philosophy at college in Mexico City. I have also written different short (screen)plays which have received international awards. At present I am writing my PhD thesis in comparative literature.
