**** PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING A CLASS STATING YOUR LEVEL OF SPANISH AND WHICH SKILLS YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRACTISE - i.e. reading, writing, speaking and/or listening. PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT I ONLY TEACH SPANISH TO ADULT STUDENTS. I DO NOT HELP GCSE OR A LEVEL STUDENTS WITH THEIR HOMEWORK OR EXAM PREPARATION. ***
I am a native Spanish speaker with a university degree in English Linguistics and Literature and a MA in Psycholinguitics & Neurolinguistics. I started teaching online in 2011 and I have delivered more than 700 Spanish classes to adult learners since them.
*** MATERIALS I USE FOR MY LESSONS ***
I use a wide range of materials from the World Wide Web. However, I prefer creating my own materials which are tailored to the student´s needs. Once I know the level you have, I will recommend you some books that you may purchase in order to help you to master this language. I have also designed a special programme of study will be tailored to the needs of beginner, intermediate and advanced students. PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BOOKING A LESSON.
*** WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MY LESSONS ***
This is how it works:
• Once you have booked a lesson with me, I will assess your level of Spanish ( except if you have not studied Spanish before). This will be an informal assessment which will help me to create a course plan for you. Before this first lesson, I will also ask you for your e-mail in order to send you the materials so that you can have a look at the lesson in advance.
•My lessons start at 25.00 euros per lesson. The fee you pay when you book a lesson with me is the Verbal Planet fee. Then, you will receive an invoice sent by me AFTER the lesson. The lesson is paid AFTER being delivered.
*** WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL A LESSON ***
Next to the date & time of your class in your Verbal Planet profile you will see two different icons. One of them is for cancelling the lesson. The other one is for re-scheduling it. Click on the one for re-scheduling – 'Re-schedule' icon - and you will be shown a list with all the time slots available. Choose the one that suits you and save it. Your lesson has been re-scheduled.
My lessons will consist of a combination of the four skills: Reading, Writing, Listening & Speaking. From the very first lesson, you will be encouraged to speak. I will use Spanish most of the time during my on-line lessons, including with beginners. Lessons will be tailored to the student´s needs.
Guadalupe was very kind. It was interesting using her classroom program "Sribbal". I enjoyed having the notes in front of me. I did have a little trouble hearing because you can hear typing while communicating during the lesson. I will take another
