According to academic research, linguists have demonstrated that there is not one single best method for everyone in all contexts, and that no one teaching method is inherently superior to the others. However, I prefer Direct Method (also called Natural Method).
A language should be fun, interesting and enjoyable. For this reason, I try to make each lesson understandable, easy to digest and fun. I place a big emphasis on speaking as I felt that at school, I learned how to read and write but didn't ever practise speaking or listening.
I tailor lesson plans and learning plans according to every student's special needs and goals so that you can have a more personalized learning experience. Language learning and teaching are both great passions of mine. I speak 6 languages fluently and teach 3 of them. Also learning 3 other languages myself. ;) I teach with a lot of enthusiasm, patience and with an overall positive approach.
I am a Cambridge University graduate and a fully-qualified teacher. I have previously taught in both Secondary and Primary schools as well as private Language Schools. I plan effective and engaging lessons that are tailor-made to meet the needs of my students. I also have a large bank of my own tried and tested lesson resources which I enjoy devising in my free time.
I offer simple, tailored, engaging and effective individualized lessons that will help build your confidence and learn Spanish once and for all! My interactive approach focuses on supporting the student to become fluent in Spanish through the combination of grammar and vocabulary with spontaneity.
My teaching method is communicative. I focus on different skills (active and passive) in the context of real-life situations and students´ interests. I offer a friendly and enthusiastic approach.
I teach language lessons to students aged 11 and up. I provide extra support for those studying towards a teaching qualification such as GCSE or A level. The lessons are also for adult learners who want to develop their own language skills either in preparation for a holiday in a Spanish speaking country or for work purposes. My approach involves structured learning in its simplest form.
I am an experienced native Spanish teacher who is enthusiastic about transmitting my knowledge of the Spanish language and culture. I perform an interactive learning process that suits your needs and expectations to provide always positive educational experiences. I offer private lessons from individuals to small groups at all levels, ages and motivations.
- If I had to choose one particular method, I could not choose any. My goal is to choose the methods that best fit to my students, not to force my students to adhere to any limiting methodology. - Personally, I really enjoy to teach languages through the music, it is a useful tool for language learning. Language and music are kindred spirits.
I am able to provide Spanish lessons for children to give them the level required by their school or to prepare them for their future examinations (e.g. oral exam in Spanish language of the ENA, of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, etc.). I also offer an interpretation, translation and proofread/text correction service.
Lessons tailored to your specific needs, interests and adapted to your skills. Based on the communicative approach, but always paying attention to grammar. I create my own teaching materials, using a wide range of interesting authentic resources. Expertise in GCSE and A-Level Spanish and fully preparation for the new specification.
I hold the Certificate in Spanish Language Teaching to Adults GCSLTA by Instituto Cervantes in London, the official Spanish Language and Cultural centre. I am graduated in Tourism by Deusto University in Spain. Languages go hand in hand with the culture of the place. Learning is a beautiful concept as everyone is unique in their own way.
You've probably tasted tapas and heard some flamenco, but sure you like to know more about our culture. Anyway I can adapt the lessons to your interests in the basic level up to the intermediate level (A1-B2). I like to organize the one-hour classes divided as follows: 25 minutes for grammar and answer questions, 15 minutes of vocabulary and 20 minutes of conversation.
I try to addapt every single lesson to my students' needs and interestings, preparing a variety of materials and activities (including games, songs...). I try to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible so that my studnets could get into language learning and feel comfortable and confident on it.
I bring a fresh, professional, honest and respectful approach to teaching, encouraging individuals to fulfil their learning goals and maximise their potential while they feel at ease. I easily empathy with my learners, classes are lively and communicative based on learner's interests.
I base my classes on a personalised methodology, in which every student takes its own process. I like to practice and develop the 5 skills in my students: speaking, writing, reading, writing and listening.
My method is student centered with ongoing assesment throughout formal and informal ways of participation. However, I am flexible about the teaching methodology. It mainly depends on the subject matter,the learner's characteristics and the context in which the teaching is performed (face-to-face, individual, groups, online, etc).
I always try to make the class an enjoyable and helpful moment. I use to work with my own material, however those students who come just for exams we use to work with their material. I focus on all the areas of the language: speaking, grammar, writing and listening. Nevertheless, I'm happy to answer you requests about methodology.
My name is Elena and I am a Spanish Teacher from Spain. I hold a Postgraduate’s course in Education and a Master’s Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.
I have recently graduated with a degree in Spanish (2:1) and I am available to tutor Spanish learners at primary school level, GSCE and A-Level. I prefer to teach in a more active and fun way, utilising games and activities to enhance learning.
With almost 20 years experience into teaching,I learnt to focus on my students, bring nice materials to the classroom and tailor made the lessons. Each student is different and I do my best to achieve their goals depending how you are.
I base my classes in learning by having fun. I like to create my own materials for each student, every person is different and we all learn in different ways. With my students, children and adults, I like to play different games, we learn and have fun at the same time.
My teaching methodology is mix formal and non-formal education. I could prepare you for take official titles or adapt to your needs. I have many different tutoring skills I use flash cards, workbooks, conversation skills. I am outgoing, charismatic, diligent, and determined.
WHY LEARN WITH ME?: Professionalism|Flexibility|Innovation|Friendliness|Enjoyment|Progress| The main focus my Spanish lessons is to provide students with a high-quality language-learning experience to enable them to pursue their goals and aspirations in the best way possible.
In Spain I used to prepare my own lessons at home, following different books and preparing my own material. But I think that for the languages the method should be different, because the best way to learn a language is practising it (this is why I'm here!). So the best way to proceed, would be speaking all the time in Spanish with the student and trying to correct the pronunciation and the accent.
This experience is what made me be able to design and offer lessons that I would like to find if I was going to be that student. You might be wondering how this looks like… Well, my motto is that learning should not be boring or repetitive. So, for my lessons I thought this should work differently.
My teaching methodology depends on the needs of the student. I am happy to work with students of all ages. I focus my lessons on meaningful communication rather than just repeating memorized phrases or words. In my opinion, listening and speaking are the two most important skills in learning a language and I like to focus on them during my lessons unless the student decides otherwise.
Grammar and vocabulary are the key, core and fundamental for language learning.
I learned a teaching method that allows you to learn while using only the target language. I have participated to a four month course and experienced teaching languages using this method for one year at Coventry university.
Just like when we first learn our mother tongue, I believe we can use a similar approach when it comes to learning a second or third language. The psychology behind it is the same and we achieve this by constant repetition.
