Spanish native private tutor from Madrid, Spain, living in Horsham since July 2009. I really enjoy teaching my language to anyone who is interested in learning it.
Private tuition "face-to-face" lessons for ten years in the United Kingdom.
I have also been doing online tutoring with university students for 3 years using platforms such as Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom and FaceTime. We only need access to a computer, phone or tablet and some good headphones to improve the sound.
I speak Spanish with learners since the first class. Spanish material specially designed for speakers of other languages, both children and adults, and for intermediate and advanced levels. Specific courses for learners, depending on what they want to learn (Spanish for children as a second language, business oriented, for their holidays, conversation, grammar and so on). Highly experienced in GCSE, IGCSE, A level and IB tutoring across all exam boards.
Taking into account the uncertainty that lies ahead, I thought it was necessary to be ready to move from face-to-face to online lessons, trying to disrupt as little as possible the learning of my students. In order to achieve this I have started uploading lessons to a "Classroom" type of platform for intermediate and advanced levels and abilities.
Some of you may know about this application and it is quite easy to use (although we can still rely on good old email); I am sure it will be extremely helpful when it comes to set homework. With this in mind, lessons will be assigned according to levels, and I will be giving access to them individually. Most of the files will be editable and students will also have access to audio-files to practise listening comprehension.
My intention is to combine this online teaching with weekly video face-to-face lessons where we will be able not only to discuss different aspects of their work or grammar difficulties they might have, but also practise the speaking aspect of the language (role-plays, photo cards and general conversation according to level).
Please be assured this is not new to me, I have been doing online tutoring with university students for 3 years using platforms such as Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom and FaceTime. We only need access to a computer, phone or tablet and some good headphones to improve the sound.
For this scheme of work to go ahead, students would have to open an email account. Otherwise, they would not be able to access lessons with exercises or grammar explanations content in the "Classroom" platform. I have opted for this 'particular one because I am more familiar with, it will take me less time to prepare lessons and I will be able to revise my students' work and give feedback online more quickly.
