Leonor - Central Eastbourne - ESOL (English)

Methodology

Emphasis on speaking and rapid progress. We offer pronunciation improvement and a focus on communicating in complete phrases. We can quickly push your progress to the next level. We can really impact your fluency.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Spanish at any level, any age, and have a long experience face to face as well as on internet. I am a teacher of Spanish and I teach standard, Castilian Spanish, the official language of modern Spain. It considered to be the most "correct" Spanish in the world. Beside this, I work with native colleagues of mine so we are able to offer more subjects such as English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and more; only native tutors. If you are interested in a language which has not been mentioned here, just ask me.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have two degrees university degrees plus a Qualified Teacher Status from the UK. One of my degress is from one of the best universities in Spain, León University.
1. Bachelor Degree: Teacher of modern Languages. Cádiz University, in Spain. By the way, did you know that Cádiz is the oldest city in Europe? It is more than 3.000 years old.
2. Master Degree in Spanish Expertise. University of León (Castilla León), in Spain.
3. QTS (Qualified Teacher Status in the UK): 0831068

Beside several courses about teaching language approaches.

- How much do you charge?

Our fees start from 30 pounds per lesson/hour. This is quite reasonable considering our results, as well as all material being included in the fee.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my own place, in Eastbourne area, in the South cost of England, but I also go to students´ homes and I teach using the internet as well, delivering lessons all over the world. So, do not concern about distance. It does not matter!!

- When are you available?

I am available weekdays and weekend on mornings, afternoons and evenings. I also work during schools holidays, especially for the A-levels and GCSE levels.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and levels are more than welcome.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

DELE (Diploma Español Lengua Extranjera)
GCSE Spanish-English
AS Spanish- English
A2 Spanish- English
University Spanish- English
Informal Spanish- English

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

The student should have an internet conection, a free program called "skype" and a microphone. A webcam is optional but desirable. I will email the material few days before the lesson´s date, so students could have a look and work through it if desired. The invoice will be done through Paypal or UK bank transfer and always before lessons. Bank transfer or credit card payments are available as well.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Tired with boring memorization? Do you find formal grammar tiresome and less than effective? Come and try my method, the direct method!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have several years of experience as a teacher of modern languages (Spanish, English and Italian), helping everyone from children to adults, all cases with really good results (references are available if required). Seven years of experience teaching languages via internet. I worked for at least three online academies of languages and I currently work for Cervantes Ltd, an online/offline school which also offers translation services.
We currently provide Spanish, English, Italian, Portuguese, Catalan, German and French tuition; all of them with native, qualified and experienced teachers.

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

Yes, I do have a current DBS certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my training at two different universities, in Spain. I also worked as an academic director at the Spanish department of Rotger, an academy of languages in the South of Spain (close to Gibraltar) for three years. I currently work for "Cervantes school Ltd, Language and Translation", in Eastbourne, with brilliant references available if required. This is the best school I have ever been in, and I am very proud and happy working for them.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Yes, I am a member of ELE Congress (Teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have students coming to me every week with an important improvement in their Spanish as we mix conversation and grammar (depending on needs). They love learning more about Spain and improving their Spanish level, so they really enjoy the time of practice. We have as well students over skype. Lessons in skype are more intense and totally effective.

I was a complete beginner with Spanish, and after a course I had enrolled for was cancelled, I looked around for a tutor. Leonor is a great choice - she has endless patience. Changing methods of learning, plus one-to-one tuition, has enabled me to progress from a simple 'hola' to understanding speech and the written word whilst learning grammar and vocabulary. It doesn't come naturally to me but I don't feel like the hopeless cause I was before, and I have the confidence......

The Spanish lessons received from Leonor are helping enormously. The
insistence of speaking in Spanish, while difficult at first, has proved essential and really creates confidence in using the language.
