Spanish native speaker and University tutor in Birmingham offering classes all levels

Methodology

My teaching methodology is eclectic. Always student centered, using different approaches depending on the student needs. Creating communicative environment in which students feel free to use the language in spontaneous settings in order to develop their communicative and intercultural competence in real-life situations through the use of authentic material.

Experience

I have been teaching Spanish in secondary and university level for more than 20 years in different countries. My teaching and learning experience in France and with English speakers students in Jamaica, the United States and the UK has given me an excellent opportunity to be able to teach and know learner's needs in different international contexts.
