Personal Description:
I am a well experienced native Teacher of Spanish, able to teach any level or age range. I have two language teaching degrees, one of them specifically for teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I am also a very enthusiastic person and very passionate about my job.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching since 1999 in Spain, Wales, England and Israel. I have had students from 2 to 72 years old and I have experience in Primary, Secondary (GCSE, IGCSE and A Level), Business and Higher Education (Menéndez Pelayo International University in Santander, one of the most famous Spanish Universities regarding Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language.)

My students usually get fantastic grades. This year one of my GCSE students got an award for attainment, she got full marks in her GCSE Spanish exams, top of her school.

Tutoring Approach:

Communicative approach. I try to make my students talk in Spanish as much as I can, as this is how to make the most of every lesson. The best way of learning a language is using it. To propitiate this I try to build a relaxed atmosphere where the students are not afraid of trying to use what they are learning.

I also teach the Spanish Language via our culture, by for example learning about our most famous festivals, our history or our customs. I even teach about our food....and how to make some of our most popular dishes like paella or tortilla española....by actually making them!

Some of other activities you can find in my lessons include singing, watching videos, drama, games, etc...The whole point is to make every lesson interesting and entertaining.

Personal Description:
Hello and thank you for reading this synopsis:

I speak six languages and have been teaching people of all ages and levels now since 2000. My level of success can be equated to the continuous success of my students for sixteen years.

I teach Portuguese, Spanish, English for Foreigners, Italian and French as a fluent native speaker because I have lived in the countries where these languages are spoken.

My degree is in Modern Languages and Linguistics, which means I also edit and translate work into various languages. My MA is in Linguistics and I have worked for years now with well known multinationals and celebrities.

Teaching Experience:

1994 - Taught English for Foreigners and Spanish at the well known Brazilian University of Campinas. I did this whilst doing a year abroad in Brazil to master Portuguese. My students where all faculty deans of that university.
1995-1997 - Taught English, Spanish and Portuguese in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Apple Language School
1997-1998 - Taught at Berlitz in Panama, Republic of Panama also in Quito, Ecuador, and Manchester University.
1999-2003 - Self-employed Language Tutor - teaching individuals and well known organisations such as Delloitte, Mercedes Benz, Unibanco, Santander, Lloyds TSB, DLA Piper International, Volkswagen, PwC and many others.
2003-2004 - Post- Graduate Degree in Modern Languages - Education - Taught at several secondary schools.
2005 - To Date - Have taught several students as a private tutor to pass all exams from GCSEs to Graduate degrees and Doctorates. I have also taught several well known footballers and celebrities.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach as I would like to be taught - By someone experienced who knows what systems work in a secure and fun environment.
I mastered new languages many years ago, but in order to succeed I had to try several systems before perfecting what I now offer - I understand that everyone has different needs so I simply adapt to your needs and make sure that you enjoy what you learn... and learn a lot.

Personal Description:
I am a second year university Student in Southampton, I study Journalism and achieved a first in the first year of university. I want to pass on knowledge I have learnt in a number of work places, including Reuters in Canary Warf. I specialise in Journalism, History, Politics and in particular English Language.

Teaching Experience:

Have taught for a brief time in Primary Schools, however the main part of my teaching is now peer to peer making it less intimidating for a student to ask questions they may have on a topic.

In my secondary school I was a mentor for 11-17 year olds providing help and support for any school related needs they may have had.

I find nothing more fulfilling that helping a fellow student and watching them learn and understand the problem they once had trouble with.

Tutoring Approach:

Students will be able to voice questions they may have, and not feel embarrassed as I am a student myself. There will be homework involved, and I will target the area of the subject that the student is struggling with.

The fact I am still a student is important as I can bridge the gap between teacher and student. The most common problem students come to me with is that they feel embarrassed to ask questions to their school teacher.

I do not try and recite words from a textbook, but ask the students to learn from my experiences and ultimately do the best they can do.

Personal Description:
Being at the age where I'm young enough to still bond with the students on a more social level, whilst also having years of experience to be professional and engaging, is a rare and useful combination of traits for me as a Tutor. I began tutoring for a couple of years at Sixth Form and found I really enjoyed bonding with the students and building a constructive learning environment, and since then have gone on to do an undergraduate degree and one year of teaching.

Otherwise, my life at the moment is combining travel with work and studying. I studied in Copenhagen for 1 year on the ERASMUS program, just returned from teaching at a university in Beijing for one year, will teach in Spain for a few months before doing a Master's program in 4 different countries (Germany, Argentina, India, South Africa).

I'm undecided as to whether I want to go into teaching and lecturing, or instead Diplomacy and International Politics. So, for now, i'm gaining experience and qualifications, learning languages, and seeing the world whilst it's easy to.

Teaching Experience:

Short Form:

- 2 years tutoring whilst at Sixth form in Wilson's Grammar School
- 1 year in Beijing teaching English and Western Philosophy at Beijing International Studies University, including IELTS
- Alongside teaching in Beijing, numerous tutoring roles, from 7-year-olds to the Sports Director of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Committee

Tutoring Approach:

Largely influenced by Stephen Krashen's ideas on the Affective Filter when learning. Essentially the barrier that we sometimes put up in our minds when learning then prevents lots of information actually going in, due to a combination of emotional and motivational factors. The child is worried or scared, dislikes their teacher or learning environment, thinks that they're terrible at the subject so don't see the point, and so on. So I feel the biggest determining factor in how well the lessons go is based on initially bonding with the student and encouraging them in a safe and sometimes fun learning environment.

What we do in the lessons will largely depend on the subject, but for example with entrance exams, we would largely drill through old past papers, find areas of confusion of weakness, then spend a lesson talking through how you tackle those particular questions and building up their understanding of what's required. Taking a page from the Michel Thomas method of learning: Don't rush anything - to remember is just to have properly understood, and once you've achieved that you can move on without needing to come back to it.
