Very experienced native Spanish tutor, offering lesson at student home,my place in the Midlands or Skype nation wide. You will speak Spanish better than you can dream.

Methodology


I learnt about the acquisition of a foreign language for children and adults including the development of reading and writing, which would help me adjust to teaching anyone differing abilities
Knowing this would help me to think of innovative ways to ensure my students gain the most out of my lessons. I enjoyed studying PTLSS level 4, gaining an understanding of interaction between people and the effect of their personal environments. All of my subjects involve a great deal of written, speaking and audiovisual resources to work so throughout the courses I have developed my analytical and evaluation skills. I feel these combined with the ways in which I have been taught to convey my ideas will be helpful to a teaching role

Experience

Even when I was younger, I have always said I would be a teacher.
Playing 'classroom' with my sister was always my favourite game and I constantly played the teacher. This aspiration has firmly remained as I now see university as the first step to becoming a teacher. My experiences of school life, Martial arts sensei (teacher) and my period in the Spanish Air Forces, like a sub-official troops trainer have reinforced this ambition as throughout my life. Motivating teachers have inspired me through their dedication, enthusiasm and ability to make learning engaging. I feel that the impression a teacher leaves on a young student is critical to the beginning of their development, and the good influence my primary teachers had on me has led me to want to continue learning throughout my life with teaching as my career. English has been additionally beneficial as I learnt about the acquisition of a foreign language for children and adults including the development of reading and writing, which would help me adjust to teaching anyone differing abilities
Knowing this would help me to think of innovative ways to ensure my students gain the most out of my lessons. I enjoyed studying PTLSS level 4, gaining an understanding of interaction between people and the effect of their personal environments. All of my subjects involve a great deal of written work so throughout the courses I have developed my analytical and evaluation skills. I feel these combined with the ways in which I have been taught to convey my ideas will be helpful to a teaching role
Satisfaction for me comes in knowing that I have done my best and in teaching that would be helping others get a head start in education and seeing them progress. I believe I would thrive as a teacher because of these personal skills coupled with my own enthusiasm and persistence for my subjects. I feel that I will develop personally through the university experience and look forward to being part of the socially active community. I am also keen to meet people from all different backgrounds as I will in the role of teaching.
My adoration for Spain, his culture, tradition, history and language, can only be described with passion. A Spanish History teacher of mine once warned me 'Trust only what you can experience with your own senses.' Perplexed, I brushed away this pessimistic declaration; believing this view could only be shaped by a close-minded, bruised, distorted vision of the world. 

I was very wrong. 

 After much thought over the political turmoil Spain has faced in the past century, I concluded that the senses are more significant and strong in Spain than anywhere else in Europe. Whilst historically they may have put up with hideously incompetent leaders, and captains of industry, they fail to tolerate competent works of literature, cooks, film directors, tailors, opera singers... the list goes on. In a corrupted world of disorder, disaster and exploitation, only artistic excellence is incorruptible, and maybe my teacher was right; only beauty can be trusted. And that's why not only do I strive to surround myself with the beauty of language and self learning, but more so the appreciation of communication and culture. Whilst fraud, natural disasters and war break out all around us, what can we do to hold onto any sense of individual human dignity? Maybe nothing. Maybe nothing except, perhaps, to pride ourselves on the fact that we always marinate our chorizo to magnificence, dance the most eye-catching Flamenco, or make the greatest paella in the whole town. 



This passion for developing my own language skills was more recently fuelled by a summer pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, where I lead a group of other British pilgrims in a 350- Km. walk, and we discover the power of the verbal communication between people. I was blessing with special skills for languages, and despite I have other qualifications and degrees, I can guarantee, that these skills bring to me more knowledge, job opportunities, friends, relationships and wonderful experiences in my life with different people and cultures than any other of my degrees. I found the experience invaluable, as I thrived in the company of like-minded individuals. 



Furthermore, I actively and enthusiastically participate within my friend Jane Martin from ‘Sunflower Spanish School of Languages’, giving insight on how the teaching can be improved, and establishing some Spanish conversations days, where the students have the opportunity to meet with Spanish native people, and in addition to discussing what can be done to advertise the benefits of learning a second language to other people. In the future, I aspire to teach Spanish to English people as I believe I have a natural flare in working with young and adult people. On top of this, I am working with MK Spanish (Milton Keys) running a two levels courses for Bank of Santander in his headquarters in Narborough, and I established my own Spanish lessons in my home town Hinckley, where with the support of the Vicar John Whittaker, I started to teach Spanish in St. Francis Community Centre, and also I registered myself in “English Tutors U.K.” where I already have 8 private students. This demonstrates my dedication and willingness to step out of my comfort zone, something I find reflects in all areas of the work I do. I also enjoy some charity organizations for people with disabilities or social and learning difficulties Like “Open Hands”, or “The Centre for the Blind People” both in Coventry.
something I want to continue at graduate level.

Jose Luis's CV

Personal Description:
I am a very experienced senior architect and interior designer, and diploma in teaching from The Coventry City College (PTLLS) I'm experienced in Spanish lessons for many years in the UK and in Spain, I am self-motivated, extremely punctuality, inspirational, work effectively within a group and private if require. I am a confident, fun person with a clear understanding of students needs. I enjoy motivating people and use a pro-active and manage different teaching style.


Teaching Experience:
My teaching experience in Spanish language is more than 10 years long. I deliver Spanish classes in Spain for foreigners in Madrid and Malaga, and here in UK, I deliver classes for different organizations and private academies, like. Coventry Research centre for the Blind People, Open Hands, Sacred Hearts Foundation and The language academy "Sunflower Languages" in Rugby.


Tutoring Approach:
All classes allowing students to learn in a relaxed environment and is proven to be the most effective way of language learning. If you feel daunted by the thought of learning Spanish in a large group, my system is for you. Small or private class size allows for attention to the individual student, more active participation for each student and therefore better and faster language learning.
I always organice many different activities, (Spanish cinema, shopping, reading, invite Spanish people to maintain conversation with the students, and many extra out-door activities)
