About Me

Hello! My name is Chris.
I’m a professional Spanish tutor. If you want to improve your Spanish, please do not hesitate to contact me! I have a sound grasp of all the grammatical structures and modes of speaking (imperative, subjunctive and indicative).

I’m a native Spanish speaker from Chile, currently living in Santiago.
As I've learnt English at university, I can perfectly understand the difficulties which you may encounter whilst studying a new language. I can provide you with useful advice for language learning. We can use various methods throughout our lessons. I am confident, very open-minded and resourceful.

Mi nombre es Cristóbal y soy tutor de español e inglés.
Tengo más de tres años de experiencia en la enseñanza de ambos idiomas, soy traductor bilingüe y actualmente trabajo para el Departamento de Relaciones Internacionales de una Universidad.

Como hispano hablante, sé lo difícil que significa dominar un idioma. Creo que para maximizar la efectividad del aprendizaje necesitas a un tutor capaz de conectarse contigo, ofrecerte lo que deseas y motivarte en cada lección para lograr tus objetivos.

Habiendo dicho lo anterior, me desempeñé como instructor en la milicia por ocho años. Eso me ha permitido usar el liderazgo durante mis clases.

Qualifications & Experience

I hold a degree in bilingual translation English>Spanish awarded by University of Arturo Prat, Chile.

My students are from all over the world: Canada, Russia, Italy, USA, England, etc. I have teaching experience with students of different ages, levels and cultures.

Teaching Approach

I offer individual tailor-made lessons which allow my students to work on areas of particular interest or concern. Each lesson is prepared according to the student’s specific needs.
During my lessons I use different tools such as videos, songs, newspaper articles, etc. I always advise my students to work on all aspects of language skills: reading, writing, listening and conversation, with emphasis on speaking. Hopefully we can speak Spanish from the beginning!

I provide my students with all the material they will need during the lessons.
