Hello, I hope you are doing well.
My name is Laura, I´m a native Spanish speaker, Born in Medellin Colombia, and I would love to help you with your Spanish! I have a degree in economics and Math and I have 4 years experience in Spanish and English teaching for students of all kinds of levels and ages.
My goal as a teacher is to foster a positive environment that facilitates the learning process for all my students. I do my best to make my classes dynamic and fun. I have a lot of material available to help you, everything depends on your needs.
I have been a Spanish and English teacher for about 4 years in a Language Institute called Test Target. I am currently working as an online Spanish teacher and I have around 25 students from all over the world who are learning Spanish. Most of my students are adults between 15 and 60 years of age but I also have had classes with students from 8 years to 15 years of age.
During my Spanish classes, I always like to have around 20 minutes of grammar exercises and then 40 minutes of conversation class. In my experience there is no better way to learn a language than by helping my students to speak on a specific topic, especially because in this way my students learn vocabulary and also practice the grammar learned.
I base my grammar classes on the guide books "AULA 1,2,3,4”. These books are amazing to learn Spanish for foreigners and I like to send these to my students so that they can study before each class and also they can develop the tasks that I assign them after each class. As in the conversational part, I always like to talk about a different topic so that my students can learn something different in each class.
I like to use articles, news, magazines - all according to the level and the needs of my students. I usually make my classes in google drive and send them to my students before each class so that they can read it beforehand. Each class is customised to my student's needs and goals.
