Spanish Tutor Central/ SE London - Maria Elena

Methodology

I'm passionate about my culture and my language. I love teaching Spanish and I try to include as many different techniques as possible to give a richer approuch to the student; songs, movies, recipes, poetry etc. Understanding grammar is absolutely essential and in my opinion needs to be placed in a live context so that your skills can develop in a more organic way. I suggest we should combine your personal interests, real daily situations and grammar exercises. Also as a classical singer I have been trained to work deeply on phonetics so if you are interested in an accurate pronunciation I can explain how to achieve it.
Speaking Spanish can open a huge world of experiences such as food, art, literature, films, wonderful cities to visit (or even countries) and especially a very extroverted and affectionate vision of life.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Conversational Spanish
Spanish for Travel and General Purposes
Spanish for Exams (DELE, GCSE, A-Levels, 11+, 13+, Schools Admissions)

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Undergraduate degree in Spain specialised in Spanish Literature, History and Art.
Publicity and Public Relations, Universidad Complutense Madrid
Music and Classical Singing, Real Escuela Superior de Canto, Madrid
MMus in Performance, Guildhall School of Music and Drama
Advance Certificate in Performance, Guildhall School of Music and Drama

- How much do you charge?

The first lesson is free of charge and we can have either a conversation about the goals or start inmediately with the lessons. I charge 15 pounds an hour excluding travel expenses.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach at home and I can move around London too, although I'll charge proportionally to the distance in terms of time and travel expenses. I have also taught in the Barbican Centre which is a lovely and quiet place near the City.

- When are you available?

I have a pretty flexible schedule. Including holidays and weekends. Unfortunately I'll be in Spain from the 16th of December till the 16 of January. We can have a try before then and work via skype until January if you are interested.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I work with kids as well as adults for conversational pusposes or academic and university degrees.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I think the most effective method is skype but we can also send information via email to prepare lessons.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Personally I really enjoy teaching Spanish in a holistic way, to someone who has a global interest about the language and the culture but I love pure grammar too for it's a fascinating phenomenon that allows as to communicate and to think.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught individually with all sorts of students, from basic levels to high levels.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No I don't.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current student is a singing student and we work on phonetics for her songs and also literature for grammar and vocabulary. I love explaining the differences between English and Spanish in terms of verb tenses, for instance, and phrase constructions because they also reflect a different mentality wich is very interesting. We have worked in self introduction and conversation and we discuss very often about popular expressions and refrains. She's very keen on learning so she is improving really fast and she's planning to travel to Barcelona in the summer which is going to be the perfect experience for the end of her course.
