Dedicated Spanish, ESL Teacher and French Tutor with 25 years of expertise. Experienced in both public and private teaching sectors, with a special focus on students' learning needs and effective less

Methodology

I prepare language classes taking into account not only the reason why the student has decided to learn the language but also his/her learning style. This means classes will vary significantly based on the goal of the student; for example, if you want to learn the language to pass a test or an exam, I will prepare the class with a focus on grammar, which would be totally different from a class I would prepare for somebody who wants to learn the language for business or travelling or just to keep his/her mind busy. Similarly, I would select material relevant to their goals and try to develop the skills the student needs the most. Speaking? Reading comprehension? Listening? Test preparation? It depends on you.

Background

I am a Spanish native speaker with a degree as English teacher who has teaching experience both in Argentina and Canada. My previous teaching experience includes teaching students of all ages: from 4 years old in kindergarten, to Elementary and High school students to adults and grandparents!
