Personal Description:

Language enthusiast and professional teacher for 3 years. I studied Spanish at university in the UK, and have since lived in 3 different Spanish-speaking countries for long periods of time. Recently returned to the UK having been in Brazil for 6 months learning Portuguese and teaching both English and Spanish to adults and children. I love teaching and I'm always improving, having focused on this work for 3 solid years since 2015. I'm friendly and easygoing but also with an eye for detail and an analytical approach to helping my students with their language goals. I love working with people from different cultures and teaching about the cultures that I know or have learned through living in different countries. My biggest interests are travel, culture, sport, science, business, politics, music, amongst other things. The important thing is to know what my students like, and have fun as we learn!

Teaching Experience:

Language schools teaching groups (in Colombia and Brazil), private classes with individuals (in Peru, Colombia, Brazil and online), summer school teaching children and teenagers (UK), private classes with teenagers (Colombia and Brazil), private classes with children (DaDa ABC - online).

English for business, preparation for Cambridge IELTS and CAE, general conversation and grammar classes, pronunciation training, preparation for academic or business presentations, specialist listening practice, English for kids/teenagers.

Teaching Approach:

Friendly, focused and supportive. My ultimate goal is two-fold: 1) ensure my students are making progress towards their goal, 2) enjoy the learning process and adapt as the classes continue. The second goal can be achieved over time as our professional relationship grows, and I understand better what types of content/teaching styles work for the student(s), and which don't. Homework is also vital to my teaching approach. Students who are dedicated to improving their language skills must find the time to do recommended tasks, so they can test themselves without direct support from the teacher.
