Spanish and Latin American Studies graduate, based in Hertfordshire/ North London, offering lessons in basic conversational Spanish, to university level Spanish.

Methodology

The key to my approach is basing my teaching techniques on the individual goals of my students. When it comes to learning the spoken basics of a language, my experiences abroad have taught me that the most efficient way to learn a language is simple, practice. Nothing comes close to having regular conversations when it comes to learning how to speak a language, and basing the learning on what the student needs to know leads the student to learn by necessity, which is a much more streamlined approach than learning selected phrases that a textbook thinks you will need to know.

For more advanced learners, it is key to understand the grammar of the target language, something which must be learned logically, not as a series of often-misunderstood rules. I aim to teach my students to speak with their own voice, which is only possible when you truly understand why a language functions the way it does, not simply because you are following rigid grammatical rules.

Experience

I am a recent graduate from the University of Leicester, having just completed a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Latin American Studies with Education. I have a year's experience of working as a Spanish TA, and have spent almost 18 months honing my language skills in Spanish-speaking countries.

· Discovered a passion and natural ability for conveying knowledge to other people and found being able to help students improve their Spanish incredibly rewarding.

Work experience

Skills

Spanish ability
Throughout my degree I learned to communicate in Spanish at a professional level, completing presentations and essays in Spanish. After studying in Mexico for a year I became fully fluent and significantly more confident in my abilities across all areas from spoken Spanish to advanced grammar.

Communication
From working part-time jobs involving customer interaction to experience as a teaching assistant I have developed my communication style to ensure approachability as well as being eloquent and easy to understand. From training up colleagues to meeting people from all around the world when travelling, I have gained the ability to alter how I communicate based on who I am speaking to in an appropriate manner to reflect the situation.

Organisational skills
Throughout university I have greatly improved my time management skills and ability to work independently, especially during final year which was hugely disrupted by the global pandemic. This also demonstrated my adaptability to changing situations, which has also been developed throughout working in fast-pace environments and would be essential when working in a classroom.

Interests
- Deeply interested in the psychology of the human mind and human society, especially how young people’s future aspirations are shaped by the influencing powers around them, inspired by observational research projects from my minor in Education Studies.
- Eager to learn as many languages as possible, having achieved a fluent level of Dutch and Spanish, with aims of learning Portuguese as well.
- Keen interest in history, art and foreign culture, especially that of Latin America.
- Passion for music after practising percussion since the age of 11, performing in various groups and completing professional examinations.
