About me

I am a Spanish Language teacher, native of Segovia, Spain. I am bilingual (English-Spanish) and have lived in the US for 25 years.

Qualifications & Experience

I hold an Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in International Business from Schiller International University, Heidelberg, Germany and a Bachelors in Economics and Business Administration from the UNED of Spain with most work done in the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain.

I have taught Spanish in the US for 14 years in two private schools in New York and online.

Teaching Approach

I create Spanish lesson that are fun and engaging for my students. They quickly acquire the confidence to use the new language and are encouraged to want to learn more. I use the target language almost exclusively and the students are surprised of how much they can understand even from the first day.

For students who are brand new to the language the objective is to cover the basic vocabulary and grammar with much repetition. The curriculum moves the student through different topics such as daily and leisure activities, describing people and places, shopping, restaurant and health. As students progress they engage in more advanced types of dialogues using increasingly complex grammar. The most advanced students greatly benefit from one on one dialogues and timely corrections on pronunciation and grammar. Lessons are tailored to their interests.

Students benefit the most when they practice the four skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking activities both in class and outside of class.

About me

Soy de España y llevo viviendo en Estados Unidos 25 años.

Qualifications & Experience

Tengo un Masters in Business Administration (MBA) en negocios internacionales de la Schiller International University, Heidelberg, Germany.

Soy licenciada en ciencias económicas y empresariales por la UNED. Ejercí de profesora de idiomas durante siete años en dos colegios privados de Nueva York.

Teaching Approach

Creo lecciones divertidas e interesantes y los estudiantes se sienten cómodos usando su nuevo idioma. Incluso los principiantes se sorprenden de cuánto pueden entender desde el primer día.

Para los estudiantes que son nuevos a la lengua el objetivo es cubrir el vocabulario y gramática básicos con mucha repetición. El plan de estudios mueve al estudiante a través de diferentes temas tales como las actividades diarias y el ocio, describir y socializar con personas y describir lugares. A medida que los estudiantes avanzan entran en tipos de diálogos y gramática más complejos . Los estudiantes más avanzados se benefician enormemente de la conversación con una nativa aprendiendo vocabulario y recibiendo correcciones en la pronunciación y la gramática. Las clases se adaptan a sus intereses por lo que el uso del tiempo es muy eficiente.

Los estudiantes se benefician más cuando practican las cuatro habilidades de comprensión oral, lectura, escritura dentro y fuera de la clase.

Fantastic class - I was able to tell my tutor about my first trip to Spain, and how I had no problem whatsoever, having been studying with her, to get around a be understood. That's a milestone in our studies together!
