Certified and experienced native Spanish teacher offering individual & group lessons in Manchester

Methodology

Certified and experienced native Spanish teacher that uses her passion for the richness of languages, as well as their literature and culture, to connect students to the class material. Areas of expertise include designing class material according to the CEFR and the PCIC (Instituto Cervantes Curricular Plan), and the use of innovative methodologies.
As I consider myself a skilled researcher on Applied Linguistics, I keep on learning strategies through modern methodological approaches to motivate my students to learn a second language. Motivation is a key aspect in the learning process.
In my lessons I use innovative perspectives using ITCs when possible, since new technologies are commonplace nowadays and language acquisition through this method become more stimulating.
Last but not least, I own children and parent oriented excellent communication skill with maturity and patience.

Background

I studied a Modern Languages Philology and a postgraduate degree in Applied Linguistics and Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language, which made me learn to manage proper language acquisition in different educational contexts. Moreover, I learnt to modify assignments and activities to meet the learning needs of individual students as well as prepare course work and plan class sessions.
As for my experience, I have been giving private lessons for 8 years in Spanish, English and French. All these years have trained me to teach my native language (Spanish) in all levels from A2 to C1, to people of different ages, abilities and nationalities. I have also gained experience in teaching through games with kids.
Finally, I would like to mention that my last job as a teacher in Spain was in a Superior Aviation School, where I planned, evaluated and revised curricula and methods of instruction to keep my students motivated and focused on the importance of languages in aviation. Consequently, I kept on researching on Aeronautics in order to perform quality and effective lessons, as I always do with every area of knowledge I need to focus my lessons on.
