WHO I AM:
I am an experienced and passionate teacher. Teaching and learning are two one of my passions. I have a website where I give useful tips for students. Check it out at marianogueira.net.
take a look at my presentation video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSQVlpAz5KI&index=64&list=PL18927A7B996BD55F ) to get an idea of my online lessons and they way they work
I have taught Spanish for 8 years, both as a freelancer and for different schools and institutions. I have a lot of experience in online teaching (via Skype and Google Hangout), which is actually my speciality.
I have a bachelor degree on Spanish Philology (that is Linguistics and Spanish and Latin American Literature), and two masters degrees on Education and on Spanish as a Second Language (ELE). I studied in Madrid, at the University Complutense and University Autónoma.
As part of my job, I also do proofreading write for several blogs and language magazines and publishers and sometimes I do proofreading in Spanish as well. I am very interested in e-learning and that is why I have learnt to use different tools both to manage my classes and to create my own teaching materials.
I SPEAK FLUENT ENGLISH, FRENCH AND PORTUGUESE
WHAT I TEACH:
I teach Spanish at all levels and for many different profiles and purposes:
. Grammar reinforcement and vocabulary
. Writing skills
.Business, interviews, travelling
.Official exams and DELE
.Conversation and oral skills
.Spanish and Latin American culture
HOW I TEACH:
. Lessons based on communicative approach.
. Interactive materials, fully adapted to online learning.
. Lessons taught entirely in Spanish, unless otherwise requested.
. Practical lessons with lots of attention to oral skills.
. Classes fully adapted to every student's pace and intretests.
. Final review with explanations, vocabulary, and some exercises, that is sent to the students after every lesson or every two lessons.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION:
As a result of all my work, I have developped my own website, which includes my professional portfolio and lots of tips and exercises for Spanish students. You may find it at http://marianogueira.net
I enjoyed vey much this lesson with Maria. We practiced with different resources to talk about an experience in the past and Maria answered a few questions that I had regading past tense.
Today we focused on vocabulary related to jobs and we used some questions related to job interviews, which was a good way to talk about professional experience and use the past tenses!
We went through some familiar expressions in Spanish and we talked about some cultural difference between French and Spanish. A very interesting lesson!
A great class, very practical and relevant. Gracias!
