Personal Description:

I am a teacher of Spanish from Madrid with fifteen years of experience. I am currently living in Cardiff.

I have a PhD in Spanish Linguistics. I also studied Hispanic Philology and I did a MA in Spanish Language focus on the field of teaching Spanish as a second language.

Teaching Experience:

I have been working as a teacher of Spanish Language and Literature in different academic sectors from 2005, so I have experience on working in different academic systems and with various profiles of students. In my last 4 years I have been supporting Spanish GCSE and A-levels students with excellent results -95% of my students have achieved A**.
I taught Spanish at Swansea University and also at Cervantes Institute in Leeds two years ago.
I lived in Poland where I taught Spanish Language and Literature for three years in a high quality school in Warsaw (José Martí). I also taught Spanish at Eton College, UK, therefore I am very familiar with the education system in UK.

At José Martí I also was the coordinator of Spanish, which means that I carried out functions of coordination, communication and implementation of joint projects between the school and the Ministry of Education of Spain.

During my years in Poland I also taught Spanish at Cervantes Institute of Warsaw.

I worked in different research projects under the supervision of Dr. Alberto Anula Rebollo. At that time, besides the researching tasks, I organized some literature workshop with texts that were adapted for students of Spanish from the collection “Fácil lectura”, Sgel. I am the author of two books of that collection: Leyendas, by Bécquer, and Doña Bárbara, by Rómulo Gallegos.

Teaching Approach:

I base my lessons on a communicative approach but I sincerely believe that exercises from a structural approach are essential in order to systematize the use of the language. A second language is not assimilated by our brain in the same way that the native tongue. However my lessons are tailored for every student needs and learning approach. The main focus of my lessons is the student to feel confident and communicate in Spanish from the very beginning.
Please note my prices are online-classes based.
