Professional and experienced native teacher of Spanish in Colchester (sense of humour included)

Methodology

How I organise my lessons depends on my students' needs and requirements, but I I always try to teach in a fun and interactive way. My aim is that my students are able to communicate in Spanish so, even if of course knowing the grammar is very important, I make sure that they can use their knowledge in real life situations.

Background

Hola! I am a translator and languages teacher from Spain. I have a bacherlor's degree in Translation and Interpreting (English and French) and a master's degree in Translation for the Publishing World.
I have worked as a teacher of Spanish for foreigners at Education First (Malaga, Spain) and as a teaching assistant for a secondary school in Lattes (Montpellier, France) and for the University of Bath in England. Also I have worked as a private tutor for English, French, Spanish Literature and Spanish for Foreigners for students of different ages, levels and nationalities in Spain, England and France.
Apart from that, I have worked as a translator and editor for the American company Trusted Translations, for the Russian Museum of Malaga (Spain) and for the translation department of the University of Malaga.
I love languages, arts (especially literature and creative writing), sports, nature, and philosophy. For me, teaching is a job that allows me to spread my passion for languages and different cultures to my students.
