It's such a pleasure to meet you!
Mi nombre es Diego. I live in Colombia, and I teach Spanish online using stories.
I have 9 years of experience teaching languages with stories, and just like you, I'm a language learner too.
Because of that, I know how much you struggle when you have conversations with native speakers in Spanish.
I know that sometimes when people talk to you, you may end up telling yourself:
"Is this even Spanish?"
What's worst, I know how frustrating it is to know that even though you've been doing Duolingo for a while now, you still can't express yourself with fluency and confidence in Spanish.
I know how you feel because I used to feel that way when I was learning to speak English.
Thankfully, I found stories and a powerful method to use them to improve my language learning, up to the point that I became highly proficient in English. Then, when I became a Spanish teacher, I began to help my students achieve the same results I got from stories.
This has been one of the funniest and most powerful ways to teach Spanish that I've used as a teacher and to learn languages.
This method I use during my lessons is called TPRS (Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling), which is an approach that uses stories and comprehensible input (easy to understand Spanish) to teach the language and boost the student's abilities to understand and speak the language.
One of the most rewarding and exciting feelings I get from teaching Spanish with this method is to see how students start to understand, not only more Spanish, but native speakers from other cultures and parts of the world, and this is something that I would like to share with anyone who joins my Verbling lessons.
However, before booking a lesson with me, have in mind that I focus on students who already have a basic knowledge of Spanish.
My classes are fully conversational, so you will need to speak and listen to tons of Spanish.
If you book a lesson with me, we will:
- Listen to stories in Spanish.
- Have tons of conversations in Spanish.
- Increase your fluency with the stories.
- Improve your skills to understand Spanish native speakers.
- Improve the way you conjugate verbs in Spanish.
Now, if you're looking to:
-Learn basic vocabulary in Spanish.
-Study more grammar rules.
-Do written exercises.
-Have textbook homework and grammar drills.
Then I suggest you go ahead and book a lesson with another tutor from the wonderful community of teachers we have on Verbling.
But if you're excited, motivated, and committed to improving your spoken Spanish, and your listening skills in Spanish, then book a lesson with me immediately.
I'll be super excited to meet you in a live lesson.
¡Nos vemos pronto!
**PLEASE NOTE: Commitment is very important to achieve any goal in your life, and because of that I appreciate time very much. So, once a session starts, I usually wait 15 minutes to see if the student shows up. If the student doesn't show up, I'll mark the lesson as complete and charge 100% of the lesson. However, you can always message me beforehand if you have an issue, and we can reschedule without any charge. Thanks!**
**ONE MORE THING: Currently, I only work with adults, so if you're looking for a Spanish teacher for your daughter or your son, please go ahead and contact one of our great teachers who specialized in helping kids in our wonderful community of teachers at Verbling**
This is what we're going to do in your trial lesson:更多
1- I'll tell you a story in Spanish, usually, students don't understand much of it.
2- We'll uncover all words and expressions.
3- We'll have a conversation about the story and we'll use a powerful technique to develop your fluency in your Spanish.
4- We'll review the story.
By the end of the lesson, I guarantee you'll understand 100% of the story.
