I discover I wanted to be a full time teacher when I moved to Poland and started teaching sporadically. After I came back to Spain I took a course on teaching skills and started to teach independently. And I loved it! The more I taught the more I liked. I still love teaching cause I understand my culture better and the way Spanish people think. I find that fascinating. To me, explaining why we would say things in a certain way because of our culture is the best bit.
Be sure you will always have contact with the real culture during our lessons.
I usually take a coaching approach. That means we will set goals and every week we will review what we've done so far and what we can do next. My students are the ones that choose the pace they want to learn, I only guide them through the whole journey. When it comes to materials we usually use real life materials like youtube videos and also fun speaking activities to practise specific areas of the language. I do it in a way that my students are engaged while still learning the insights of the language.
Vocational Diploma. Among the subjects I studied environmental education in which I learn the best methods to teach groups and individuals about environmental problems. I use that methodology in my Spanish lessons at the present time

5 Years of experience Teaching Spanish. I specialise in Spanish verbs and I have helped many students to understand the differences between the past tenses and use them correctly. Another area of expertise is coaching. I love helping my students to set goals and achieve them when it comes to language leaning. I consider that for all those reasons I am much more than just someone to practise Spanish informally as I can help them and guide them in a very specific way.
