Personal Description:

I am a native Spanish teacher holding a teaching qualification in Secondary Education from the Complutense University from Madrid (2005) and a teaching qualification in Further Education from Stirling University (2013).
At present, I teach Spanish at Abertay University, at the Tayside Language Centre and privately.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching Spanish for the past 8 years in Dundee. During this time, I have taught Spanish for holidays and business courses. I have also supported students to successfully pass their exams (CGSEs, National 5, Higher, Advanced Higher, etc … ).

Throughout my teaching years, I have become very aware of the aspects of the language that students find challenging and how to help students to successfully become fluent…

Tutoring Approach:

I am an enthusiastic and flexible teacher who prepares interactive lessons based on the student's needs and requirements. I encourage students to speak as much as Spanish possible during the lessons.
I explain how the grammar works and how the language is used.
In my lessons I make use of a rich variety of learning sources:handouts, audio files, videos, books, the news, Spanish films and documentaries.

Students’ feedback has been extremely positive and many have commented on the positive aspects of being taught by a native speaker who knows and understands both languages and cultures.
My own contextualised resources have also proven to be successful, by finding many students being extremely pleased for working on contextualised/current/relevant handouts that teach, both, vocabulary within a context and the "logic" of how the language is used. Most resources are structured in units and each unit includes plenty of exercises to put into practice the student's speaking/listening and writing skills.

I offer either one-to-one tuition or "groups of two" classes
