Tutoring Approach

I revolve my tutoring practice around the needs of my pupils. We can discuss what you want to improve in terms of the language (speaking, writing, listening, reading, translation etc) and I will create specific material based on your needs. If it is to improve your knowledge of French/Spanish/Portuguese in general, then we will focus on the acquisition of vocabulary and oral communication (touching also on the other skills)
I strive to make my lessons as dynamic and interactive as possible, as this is vital to successful language learning! I also love to incorporate French/Spanish/Portuguese Music, literature and film, so you will broader your knowledge of Francophone, Hispanic and Lusophone culture
