My lessons have different stages: lead-in, while, and post. I try to use many techniques to enhance my students' language skills. I always come up with cultural notes and humour to draw the learners' attention into the topic of discussion.
I am a teacher and interpreter because I like the contact with people, teaching and learning from others, both in the academic and personal sense. Apart from languages, music is another of my passions. Music and art introduce students to a new culture in a very motivational way.
My teaching philosophy stems from establishing and nurturing a positive relationship with the language, you must enjoy learning in order to really succeed. I teach degree level Spanish literature, and anywhere from beginner to advanced Spanish and English language classes. I incorporate games, acting, group work and also worksheet based lessons.
I base my methodology on the pupils' needs and strengths, approaching the language from different sources, free association of ideas and in connection to their previous knowledge, no matter how deep it is.
I'm capable of teaching at any level. Usually the lessons contain a part of grammar, vocabulary, conversation and other kind of activities to make the process funnier and enjoyable. All depends on how the student wants to get involved. We can structure a lesson in many ways.
My teaching style is very conversational and realistic. I feel that language learning needs practice and a real-life communicative approach. My goal in teaching is to have my students speaking more than myself, because using language is how you learn a language.
I am a 27 years old data scientist living and working in the UK. I have lived my whole life in Spain, so Spanish is my mother tongue, and I have a C1 certificate in English and French. I promise, learning languages can be super fun and easy! (I am also currently teaching my boyfriend, who is British :) ).
Confident and enthusiastic. Available to tutor for all ages. Flexible teaching style to suit the needs of the students; including oral or grammar focus. I think it is important to use a variety of teaching techniques in order to keep the student engaged.
I like to have relaxed and informal classes where we will try to speak as much Spanish as possible. No bored classes. Learning having fun is the perfect way to the great knowlegde. We will cover the necessary content, but I will try to challenge students with extra vocabulary or give some tips that I have learned on easy things that can be done to increase their proficiency.
My classes will be a perfect mix of vocabulary, speaking, grammar and listening. I want my students to have fun and realise how much they can already say in Spanish. Some easy writing tasks will help to remember the vocabulary. The grammar will be taught bit by bit so that it doesn't seem overwhelming. I am also a very patient teacher and won't mind explaining a topic multiple times if necessary.
Spanish is my native language and even though I am not a professional teacher, I very much helping people who want to learn it. My teaching style is based on identifying, selecting, and modifying resources to meet student's diverse needs and integrated worksheets to vary lessons and consolidate concepts and, if necessary, adapted course content and delivery style to meet their needs.
As a tutor to beginner Spanish students in school, I will approach lessons with an open mindset, prepared to be patient (learning a new language will take time, and I understand this!) with students, while also guiding them to success with proficiency and even excellence in communicating with the Spanish language at their skill level.
I am a really creative person and I am so motivated to do innovative classes. I dont like the traditional methodologies or evaluate children for one intelligence. Everybody is good in something so I try to develop this skill and they learn doing what they like. I have been giving classes for five years for children and teenagers. Also, every summer I am a monitor of free time.
If you want speak spanish, apply me, practical classes, based on experience, totally practical and entertaining. Young person with experience as a teacher More than four years of experience doing classes.
A very simple yet effective method of teaching is achieved by using the ARC approach. (as outlined by Jim Scrivener 'Learning Teaching' (1990)). Information on ARC teaching methodology and Jim Scrivener. The lesson is essentially divided into 3 clear stages. Clarification & Focus stage- e.g.
I like my classes to be as personal as possible so I base my methodology on what the student/s need. I find it particularly useful to work with movies, music or current news so as to allow the student to acquire the language in a rather organic way.
My teaching method is based on practice, so when I am to approach a new topic, I'd give a text to then let the students guess in the text what it is we are going to study, why they think a certain tense, word... is there and being used that way and once the theory is explained, I'd proceed to let them practice with what they have learnt.
My teaching method is flexible and adjusts to the necessities of the student. I am open to offer classes for students from Primary School, High School or university who want to improve their skills in Spanish language (oral comprehension and expression, reading comprehension, and written expression) or Spanish literature.
When I relate with others I always try to use a peer education method because no matter who the tutor is, there is a sharing of information and knowledge from both sides. I tailor each class according to the needs of each student, identifying the needs of learners and, if necessary, adapting course content and delivery style to meet their needs.
I base my classes on communication mainly in Spanish, I think it is the best way to learn, interactive classes, varied and focused on the needs of the student. It is important to have a good oral base to be able to learn grammar correctly. Good communication between the student and the teacher is the key to success.
My method is both hands on and individualized. I like to get to know how my students learn best and tailor their experience to meet their needs. If a method isn't working, I like to revisit it and restructure lessons to accommodate. This is why one on one lessons are ideal.
I started off teaching by taking a TESOL course whilst I was at Heriot-Watt University. I then was able to teach English to young children whilst on my year abroad in Barcelona. I have also spent 6 months in Grenoble in France. I then graduated in 2016 and went on to be accepted to do my PGDE at the University of Glasgow last year.
I like to tailor my teaching to each student. We all have different needs, and I very much try to cater to each person rather than sticking to any one method. I have experiences working with students who have ADD/ADHD as well.
Learning myself a new language (English), I have learnt that in my opinion the best way to learn, it is by practice even if this means to make a uncountless mistakes. Learn from the mistakes is the best option to push yourself forward.
My teaching methodology can be easily adapted regarding the needs of the student. I can offer conversation classes, where we can discuss a specific topic the student chooses or just normal every day chat. I can also offer vocabulary classes, grammar or written comprehension.
My teaching method is to fully immerse the student in the foreign language with a range of different activities from listening to music and watching TV in the target language to lessons which test vocabulary as well as grammar skills.
My passion, as a teacher of philosophy, is teaching but also learning. Every student makes me learn and that is amazing. I am a dynamic, enthusiastic and persistent person. The methodology of the classes will do depending on your level.
I give classes to groups or individual, I like to find the method that suits each person.
My teaching method is about joining different areas of learning. Classes are developed totally in Spanish, with additional english explanations when needed. I use different tests for reading comprehension, and exercises for improving grammar, writing expression and speaking part, while putting special enfhasis on students particular needs.
In regards of my teaching method I would say I like visual content because it make the student realize what the actual word means. In addition to that, I enjoy conversation and sharing experience, I just to have coffee every Monday with a older man that wanted to learn Spanish and I would make him tell me about his day and in the meantime I will correct him.
