Vastly experienced qualified, native teacher offering Spanish lessons in Bristol and London

Methodology

My lessons are tailored to the students' needs and goals, as I am used to covering all levels and a very wide range of topics.
I do full immersion lessons that cover all skills of language learning (reading, listening, speaking, writing, use of the language, pronunciation and intonation) using real-life materials that I adapt and create based on the students' aims and interests.
We can prepare for an official exam, a lecture, a degree, a trip or just have a conversation class to refresh and enhance what you already know - or always wanted to learn!

Experience

I have been teaching Spanish and English as second languages for over nine years in Spain, Italy and the UK. My students' ages go from 2 to 70+, and their levels were from complete beginners to C2.
Thanks to our lessons, my students have been able to obtain official certificates from Cambridge and Instituto Cervantes, as well as finish their degrees, go abroad confidently and even find love!

Irene's CV

PERSONAL STATEMENT

I am a qualified TEFL teacher with nine years of experience teaching both young learners and
adults. I enjoy being creative and have a proven ability to plan interactive and engaging learning
activities as well as create a safe learning environment, encourage curiosity and motivate students. I
am keen to use my art and media skills to create stimulating materials and activities. Teaching is my
vocation, so patience, warmness and consistency, with strong lesson planning and classroom
management skills plus experience with students with special needs and a willingness to learn and
further develop skills all come naturally.
