I am available to teach Spanish to anyone who would like to learn and appreciate it - whether you are a beginner or a more advanced speaker.
I focus on building a strong foundation of the necessary structures and vocabulary required to converse and be understood in a Spanish-speaking country, and once this is achieved I am happy to develop and focus on any particular area of the Spanish language that appeals to you - whether that be pairing the pluperfect subjunctive with the conditional perfect, or simply being able to watch and understand a film in Spanish, I am more than happy to assist you! Each learner is different, and with your help I will tailor my lesson style and format directly to your needs and preferences.
My lessons will vary depending on whether the focus is on reading, writing, listening or speaking on any given day, such that you will leave feeling confident that you can conquer each and every aspect of the Spanish language. I will break down grammatical concepts and explain them in understandable terms which apply to everyday scenarios (there's no point knowing a grammar rule if you don't use it!) and explain which words and structures to use to sound natural. I will also show you online resources (for example, YouTube videos) aimed at people learning Spanish which you can avail of between lessons to maximise your learning and appreciation of the Spanish language and culture.
I have been giving lessons in Spanish for two years, but what I lack in teaching experience, I most certainly make up for in other experience with children and young people (I am a sub-officer in the Girls' Brigade, I have volunteered with the girls aged 3-12 there for five years and have also instructed at summer camps and undergone a course in giving lessons). One of my goals in life is to be able to speak as many languages as I can possibly learn - immersing myself in languages and the rich cultures that accompany them is my passion, and presently I speak advanced Spanish, intermediate French, and Italian, Catalan, Gallego, Portuguese, Arabic, Dutch and German at a basic conversational level, but with a higher level of reading comprehension in the aforementioned Romance languages, thanks to my study of Latin.
