Spanish Lessons - Native Teacher with extensive experience with American and UK students (online or in Madrid)

I am a Spanish native teacher, with extensive experience teaching Spanish to foreign students at from primary and secondary levels and higher education. I have taught American and UK students over the last seven years, whilst pursuing my studies in Spain and in the United Kingdom. I was recently awarded my PhD, through which I learnt methodological aspects of teaching different types of public from different backgrounds.

My classes are dynamic and centred on the student's progress, carrying out different interactive activities, role-playing and exercises that will make the student increase his/her confidence with the use of Spanish, whilst learning grammar and vocabulary. I usually give the students the opportunity to send me writings that I correct at home, and I recommend listening activities that will help the student to improve his/her understanding of the language during lessons. My complete proficiency of the English language makes it easier for the student to ask specific questions or to understand how some expressions work in Spanish, having my English explanation at hand (in order to make them fully understand the most difficult aspect of Spanish).

If you want to improve your Spanish in a quick and efficient manner, do not hesitate to get in touch and discuss options with me.

Would you like to learn more about History, or do you have a particular interest in Ancient History, Art History or any other aspect of the Ancient World? If the answer is yes, I am here to teach you and take you on a trip to past historical periods, learning the keys of each culture, and enjoying learning about ancient empires, wars, society and the diversity of people that shaped the world in which we live today. I am Rubén, a recent PhD in Archaeology by the University of Leicester with extensive experience teaching in academia for the last 6 years. I have also taught Spanish to foreign students at from primary and secondary levels and higher education. I have taught American and UK students over the last seven years, whilst pursuing my studies in Spain and in the United Kingdom. I was recently awarded my PhD, through which I developed methodological aspects of teaching different types of public from different backgrounds. My experience to communicate to different types of audiences have been enhanced through my work as a contributing writer for the National Geographic History Magazine. In these classes you will be able to learn, depending on your choices...: - To recognise the main artworks of the Art world History. - To wander through the art of the Ancient World. - To identify the key aspects of historical periods. - To identify the main artworks and understand the sociocultural contexts of production. - To carry out iconographical analysis of specific artworks. - The Archaeology of Greece and Rome. The variety of topics and subjects we can cover will vary depending on the interest of the student. From general Art History lessons to very specific ones, such as the Art of the Roman World and the Provinces, or different tours through Pompeii, Herculaneum and other legendary cities of the Ancient World such as Rome, Athens, and many more. If you are interested in taking Art History & Archaeology lessons for fun or for your studies, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss further options. Thank you, Rubén M.

Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

Spanish classes for foreigners: Learn by speaking
The priority of the class is conversation as a means of teaching. The classes are taught in lessons per module, a total of four, where the students will interact in the development of the classroom, seeking learning in the interdisciplinary context. In module one and two, the aim is to reach the basic level through everyday conversations that are essential for learning the first words and phrases, enriching the knowledge of grammar. Arriving at modules three and four, the student will feel more confident when speaking, writing, reading and listening to the language through the topics raised.

Spanish, Writing and Literature Course (also ELE)
The main objective of the course is to develop the linguistic skills of writing, spelling and punctuation, necessary for the adequate production of texts. The proposal consists of a theoretical / practical methodology, which is why each class is divided between exposing the content and putting it into practice. Likewise, the information is organized into 5 units: Editorial pillars; Technical aspects of writing; Professional writing of writings; Scientific writing of texts and articles; and Editing and proofreading.

How to learn Italian and English easily and in a funny way
I specialize in tutoring English and Italian for school or personal puroposes. I aim at conveying my passion for languages and at making my lessons as enjoyable as possible. I am a native Italian speaker, but I have an advanced English level (C1) thanks to my experiences abroad. My goal is to teach grammar, but I mainly aim at focusing on conversation and vocabulary because, in my opinion, they are the most important things when learning a language.

English course all educational levels and / or school support
Faced with the new situation posed by the bilingual educational system and the globalized labor market, it is necessary to develop the necessary competences in the English language (reading, writing, speaking and listening). Classes are aimed at students regardless of the educational cycle in which they are (Primary, Secondary, Baccalaureate), as well as adults who are in a situation of improving their English skills for professional or personal reasons. In the same way, depending on the level at which the student is (Primary, Secondary, Baccalaureate or University), the techniques and strategies applied for the organization of work are fundamental, and must be adapted to the specific context of each student. After more than fifteen years working in this aspect with students of all ages, I offer a personalized and global school support service, attending to all aspects that surround the student's life at all times.
