I have wide experience teaching Spanish for more than fifteen years in public and private schools and for all ages, besides considerable experience as a English-Spanish translator/interpreter. I am currently teaching English and Spanish in different companies, language schools and the most renowned tuition agencies in London on a freelance basis and occasionally working as cover supervisor in some schools. I am familiar and experienced with all GCSE and A-Level boards an exams (MLAT, SAT, DELE...)
Experience: 20 years
I have been a tutor for almost twenty years. I am fluent in English and in Spanish. I am very patient with my students, I enjoy teaching them skills on how to use their own strengths to maximize their potential in the subjects they want to improve.
I have many different tutoring skills I use flash cards, workbooks, conversation skills, and fun games. I tend to vary the activities I do when tutoring, in order to keep my students` attention at all times.
I am outgoing, charismatic, diligent, and determined. I have a positive attitude even when students are having difficulties on certain topics my optimistic approach makes my students feel comfortable with me.
I am flexible with my time. I understand how it feels to learn a language that is completely different from the one you are used to, so I can definitely empathize with your situation and create a learning environment that will hopefully make you feel more at ease.
I encourage students to solve their own problems by guiding them with leading questions as this reaffirms their understanding of the subject matter. This method allows them to apply the same knowledge to different questions as they answer a question using their own words rather than mine.
