Information About Claudia - Northwich tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Claudia:
My name is Claudia. I come from Colombia. I trained for several years to become a teacher in Colombia, this enabled me to gain experience of primary education. I was a primary teacher for seven years in Bogotá. I enjoyed working with children; it has brought out qualities in myself both personal and professional. I feel more confident of my abilities. I find it rewarding to see young people benefit from my work.
Spanish is my mother tongue and for the last eighteen years I have been teaching Spanish to adults at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels, an experience which has made me aware of the whole process of teaching a foreign language: I understand the difficulties students face and what strategies can help them to gain a grasp of the language, improve their language skills and maintain their high level of fluency.
In my teaching I use a good range of materials and resources to support students. I try to create an atmosphere that makes learning enjoyable and effective, using a variety of resources, for instance; pictures, games, songs, videos, PowerPoint presentations, use of Internet, newspapers, books and podcasts.
I have gained the Adult Education Certificate City and Guilds 7307 part one and two; which has enhanced my performance as a tutor. I am aware of the students' needs and styles and what strategies are appropriate to help them to learn and achieve.
