I base my classes on the current level of the student. Once I examine and understand their level I will set work accordingly: writing certain types of texts, speaking exercises, how to start thinking in Spanish... I will implant a Spanish mindset that will allow students to speak more fluently and decrease their accent through a wide range of excersises.
I was born and raised in Spain. I got an A* in Spanish A-Level. I am currently studying International Relations with Japanese in Manchester. I am fascinated by languages and thus I am fluent in over 4 languages. I would love to share my knowledge and love for languages by teaching people of all levels Spanish and guiding them to perfect fluency.

Work experience and activities
• 2020-2018 Volunteer jobs in different groups (Leos Club) in Mallorca (Spain).
President of the charity group “Leos Club”.
Leos Club is a youth organization of Lions Club International ((concealed information) The Leos Club is a charity organisation which aims to aid people in the local vicinity in every way possible. I was a member for 6 years and president of the group for 2. We organised many sales at school throughout the year. We visited many organizations and places and aided them in their day-to-day life. As former president of the charity group “Leos Club”, I can assess what options are better for our team and make sure that the actions carried will have the aftermath we planned. This position also allowed me to understand better other people´s views. We managed to raise thousands of euros which we invested into helping different people from all over the country. I was also in charge of managing our budget and allocating it into projects that would be very beneficial.
• 2019 European Youth Parliament.
Official Member since 2019. Winner of the National Spain debate competition and invited to represent Spain in the international debate competition.
The European Youth Parliament is a department within the European Parliament in which young people get the chance to voice their opinions and vote for certain laws to make Europe (and the rest of the world as a result) a better place. This task allows me to constantly develop my communication skills while broadening my knowledge of varied topics. I was able to communicate and discuss with people from all over Europe, despite the cultural differences.
• 2019-2018 Captain of school debate club.
I was an active member of the school Debate Club and participated in 2 tournaments (and won both). In the second tournament I was made captain of the team and oversaw the team´s teamwork and research skills. Being the former Debate Club president of my school allowed me to learn and seek out for information concerning a broad range of topics.

Personal and skills profile
I am a very flexible and open person who can quickly and effectively adapt to and overcome adverse situations. Various experiences with public speaking, team working and charity group organising, have made me a reliable team member. My fluency in over 4 languages has improved my interactions from people with other nationalities and even people from my own. This has allowed me to communicate with many different people and immerse myself into an unknown culture. This also allows me to break the language barrier that might occur when working with many team members.
My leadership qualities also lead to me being fond of working in a team. I have always helped fellow students and friends which lead to me carrying the honour of being the head boy of secondary at my school. I represented our school whenever students had to go somewhere.
• Acquired Pre-settlement status in UK.
• Driver’s license.
• Many free hours which allow me to work when asked.
