¡Hola a todos!Hello everybody! I am Rafa and I`m looking forward to have a great time teaching new students. If you want to learn Spanish or improve them, I am the person you need!

Methodology

Speaking about learning a new language, I personally think that a lot of times are more helpful to translate a complete phrase or expression than thinking in the translation word by word. The knowledge of these expressions and phrases could help to make the translation automatically, giving a more fluent speaking.
I am friendly and personable with my students, and as I get to know them personally, they feel more comfortable and relaxed in their learning process.
In the past I helped students with their homework, but I always motivated them to think by themselves in their answers.


Hello everybody! ¡Hola a todos! I am a Spanish pianist with a lot of teaching experience whose speciality is to create solutions for each student so they can excel at the piano and Spanish.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach piano and Spanish.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have just finished this year a degree in Performance Piano in Musikene (Superior Conservatory of the Basque Country). Also I studied for two years a university degree in History and Science of Music in the UVa (University of Valladolid), and I am studying a Teaching Master in the VIU (International University of Valencia).

I am a native Spanish speaker, and people say that in my city (Valladolid) we speak the best Spanish in the world!

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour and will adjust the length of lesson to each student's individual requirements.
There are no extra charges for travel if it is less than half an hour from NW10 6FF, and also W10 4LA (that last depending the time). Travel to other areas may incur extra travel costs, by negotiation.
Group lessons can be arranged at a reduced fee.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home near North Acton Station and I am also happy to come to your house.

- When are you available?

I am available to teach all mornings, afternoons and evenings, all week days and weekends. The hour that you need!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages, from child to adults, from beginners to experts.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare ABRSM exams or any other type if you need it.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you want to learn Piano or Spanish or improve them, I am the person you need!

Background

I have plenty of teaching experience. Since I was 17 years old, I have been teaching students of very different ages (from 7 to 16 years old) and some adults. Besides, I have taught people with special learning process difficulties. I have experience teaching Spanish, Music and History and I also have lots of attitude to work!

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've been teaching one-on-one lessons for over 10 years so I know what individual students need and what types of problems they need help overcoming.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I have the DBS Certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied piano in Musikene (Superior Conservatory of the Basque Country) in San Sebastian. My principal teacher was Marta Zabaleta, a famous Spanish pianist. She studied in the CNSM of Paris with D. Merlet, in the School Reina Sofía of Madrid with Bashkirov and Marshall Academia in Barcelona with Alicia de Larrocha.
