My teaching approach is aimed at beginner and intermediate students wanting to become fluent.
I make use of a good deal of videos, articles and grammar exercises to improve listening, writing and reading skills.
My lessons are tailored to each student's skills and objectives, but as a general rule you can expect to be made to speak, to grasp two or three new concepts and to analyse a text or video. By the time we finish the lesson you'll already be looking forward to doing your homework :)
I'm a language enthusiast with 10 years of experience tutoring. I've taught students from all over the world in both individual and group modality.
In the last ten years I've taught myself six new languages, thereby developing my own methodology, which revolves around motivation and alternative practice tools.
Bilingual in Spanish, English, German and Dutch.
Full professional proficiency in French and Italian.
I have been teaching languages to individuals and groups for ten years now. I have taught Spanish, German and Dutch to Asian, African, European and South American students.
Writing poetry, prose and music, running, juggling and cooking.
Excellent! Very good. Looking forward to the next lesson
Perfect! Francisco tailored and prepared the lesson perfectly. The lesson was personalised and enjoyably conversational and it was warm and sociable. The grammar homework seems very carefully chosen. I get a sense that he will be very motivating and inspiring. I’m really pleased to be having lessons with Francisco and I’m looking forward to the journey.
Martin already has a very good level of Dutch. He's only lacking a bit of grammatical background, which I'll be happy to help him with.
This is the start of a great tutor-student relationship!
Perfect! I would highly recommend Francisco! His teaching methods are very effective in being able to retain the foreign language and also helps in building your confidence in the language you are learning. I look forward to working with him!
Zayn is very curious and a fast learner. I'm looking forward to working with him and see the results!
Francisco has a remarkable ability to make me feel connected, calm and motivated when I’m learning Spanish. His patient approach is settling when I’m struggling and I’m yet to find a teacher who is as organized (or as funny ) as he is). I recommend his services to anyone wanting to ENJOY learning a language!
Fran was my tutor for over a year. He helped me move from A1 to B1 level, with his patient and creative methods tailored to my learning style. I find him to be an excellent teacher and wholeheartedly recommend him!
