Hi! I am a Spanish native speaker. I' ve studied Primary education and a Masters in Spanish teaching for foreigners in Madrid (Spain). I'm really extrovert and cheerful and I truly enjoy teaching especially my mother tongue and my culture.
Now i'm working as a Spanish language assistant in two High schools in central London. But before I used to give private tuitions of Spanish to adults who wanted to learn or gain fluency.
I have also worked during 5 months as a teaching assistant in a Primary school in Italy, teaching Spanish amd English to Children aged from 6 to 12.
I think that the best way to teach a language is through meaningful activities, in which students can learn how to use the language in real situations, in other words, learn how to communicate orally as well as in a written context.
I also try to use the target language (spanish) as much as possible during my lessons because it's the best way to make the students train their listening and comprehension skills. To do so, I adapt my speech to their different levels.
With children I use a lot of dynamic activities, such as songs, rymes, games with TPR, making it funny and entretaining. Whereas with adults, apart from teaching grammar, I like to use oral activities and focus on fluency and pronunciation through communicative contexts.
Of course every student has his needs and objectives so I'm always adapting to their needs.
