Bilingual Spanish and English - Native Spanish Speaker and qualified MFL teacher gives online Spanish lessons

Methodology

The first lesson is to assess the needs and knowledge of the student, while also taking the time to conversate about which methodology suits the student the best. During this session, we discuss goals and objectives regarding the language to create a plan tailored to their needs.

Spanish classes include Speaking, Reading comprehension, Writing, Listening comprehension and practice.

For each lesson, I will provide the student with activities to enhance their learning, these activities can either be completed for a deadline or just as extra support. They will also be evaluated by me and checked during the lessons to provide a more effective feedback.

After 5 lessons there will be a formative assessment to check for understanding and progress. As well as, a small meeting where the achievement of certain goals will be discussed and if the student (or parent) desires to continue working with me.

Great tutor! Leonara has made me enjoy English lessons. I like the way they teach and I improved very fast. I liked the assessment they made, I was able to see my progress and build on my skills. Highly recommend!

Leonara is a fantastic teacher and I've improved my Spanish a lot this year. She went above and beyond to make sure I improved my fluency, be it written or spoken. She personalised her teaching to my needs and I've liked the tid bits she taught me about South American Spanish. However, she's also very knowledgeable about Spanish history. As I was looking to improve my Spanish to teach GCSE/A-Level students, Leonara has been amazing as she's also aware of the curriculum and examinations.

Interview with Leonora

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Leonora — I speak Spanish because of my origins, I come from a Latin American country called Chile, where I studied to become an English teacher! I think I was "wrongly" inspired by my English teachers. Growing up, I had the chance to study at private schools, which had a positive impact on my education, however my English teachers were not the best, since learning a second language in Chile, although deemed important in the curriculum, it is not as important in practice, hence why I decided to study English at a University level so I could improve and be able to teach it!
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Leonora — Yes! Well, since there are a lot of countries that speak Spanish, I can only speak for Chile and the fictional character that to me represents our language and culture. His name is Condorito, he is a condor (which is one of the emblematic animals) and was created by a chilean author to depict chilean culture through comic strips, and then with time, this developed into its own comic book.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Leonora — There are plenty, but "regaloneo" and "regalon/a," the first word means to cuddle and also to pet someone, overall just expressing love! and to be a "regalon/a" means that you love to cuddle and that you love for people to show affection by doing things.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Leonora — Speaking any language is important, either your second or third or so on. I believe that learning a language can open your mind to new realities and ways of seeing the world. For example, for me, learning English and Spanish at the same time helped me view the world differently, helped me realise how things shouldn't be gendered - in Spanish everything has a gender, either female or male whereas in English things do not have a gender-.

Other than opening your mind, learning languages helps you learn about other cultures and get to know different people in the process!
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Leonora — What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Leonora — One of the funniest memories I have of learning a new language was 2 years ago when I first moved to the UK. I remember going to the shops in Norfolk, where the accent is a bit difficult to understand, and the cashier asked me if I wanted a bag. Which did not sound like that the first 3 times I asked her to repeat herself! With time, the phrase became a common thing, so I began to understand it more each time I went to the shops.

This was an important moment to me, because although it might sound silly, it put to test years of English learning. It made me realise that even though it is important to learn structured English with set accents, you never actually stop learning and accommodating your listening to different accents!
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Leonora — Definitely coming to the UK to teach Spanish has helped me in both languages. For Spanish, I would say it helped me get used to the different evaluations such as A-Level and GCSE as well as learning some of the difficulties learning Spanish might bring to non-native speakers. English wise, it helped me develop my conversational skills and everyday use of the language.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?
Leonora — I think what makes me a superprof in languages is the fact that I can adapt my lessons to the students' needs. I definitely do not impose set lessons on them and rather tailor them to their needs. I like to take the time to get to know my students and talk about their weaknesses and strengths as well as how comfortable they are feeling with my lessons and where they are going.

As said before, my lessons are tailored to the student, which not only means I'm teaching them what they need but I involve them in their process as much as they can contribute to the lesson.
