I am skilful in promoting a very engaging and pleasant learning environment, which keeps my students motivated, eager to learn, and communicate in class. This is because I am very passionate about teaching, and I believe that is why my students are always highly motivated and enjoy very much my lessons. Also, I believe my strongest attribute is my personal relationship and involvement with students.

I have taken Portuguese lessons with Silvia for the last three months. She is, by far, the best language instructor I have ever had. Her background in Spanish Philology (which she holds a master's degree on) makes her a highly qualified teacher. Her knowledge on grammar is remarkable (in both Spanish and Portuguese), and she always finds fun ways to teach the language structures, in a practical manner. Born in Spain, but with years of experience in Colombia and Portugal, her personal connections with Iberian identities make her an ideal teacher for those who are interested in learning not only the language itself, but also the culture behind it. I highly recommend her with 5 stars!!!

Silvia is an excelent teacher. She’s been helping me through the grammatics of portuguese and has also helped me develop several other skills such as listening and speaking, with a lot of patience, cultural background and amazing dinamyc procedures to learn better. The greatest teacher. I highly recommend her.

Silvia is a fantastic tutor! She is very friendly, enthusiastic and always well prepared. Our lessons are very conversational, which has helped me build my confidence and make some great progress (whilst having a lot of fun!) I would highly recommend taking classes with Silvia!

Having previously worked with Sílvia in a school setting, having found myself heading to South America to take over a new school I found that I needed a crash course in Spanish…and Sílvia was the answer!
Tailoring the lessons to the level and linguistic history one already has (I have Portuguese which makes the interference with Spanish problematic), Sílvia tailors everything and focuses on exactly what you will need the language for, in my case I needed a hefty dose of educational terminology and an emphasis on Latin American Spanish.
Sílvia´s lessons are well-paced, responsive to the needs of the learner and well-supported through the use of challenging, but doable, exercises for homework.
I highly recommend her.
