About me

Hola! So...You are here and you want to learn Spanish! I am a qualified native teacher of Spanish and I can teach you English as well.

I started teaching English to secondary students in my country Spain. I was born in Madrid but I moved to London 10 years ago and obviously, I couldn't teach English here so I qualified to be Teacher of Spanish through Instituto Cervantes and Goldsmith University. I have taught my language privately, in groups and face to face for 5 years and I would love to teach you online.

What can you expect with my lessons?: Use the language, explanations in English if you need it, fun, role play games, lessons orientated and focused on your needs. I have loads of hobbies and interests so we might have nice chit-chats in Spanish to practice and use your knowledge.

I studied for a Bachelor's degree in English Language, I am a qualified teacher for secondary students and I am certified to teach Spanish to adults. I am still learning as I believe language teachers should be updated with the last technologies,materials,theories, language hacks when learning a new language and apply this knowledge in the lessons. Each student is different and together, myself and you are a team in the process of learning :)

Qualifications & Experience

Teaching Approach

My teaching approach is task based focused on communication. I understand each student is different so I cannot teach them all in the same way; this is the reason I personalise each lesson depending on the student's previous knowledge, goals and motivation.

I love games as role play activities, students love them and I believe they are quite good to use the language and to build confidence and help students remember what to say when they face a real life situation in a Spanish speaking country.

Regarding accents, I teach the differences between Latin America and Spain accents as well.
