    English lessons from a creative native speaker based in the center of Barcelona

    In my lessons, I spare no effort in trying to encourage a sense of personal meaning and value in the material used to help each student achieve more clarity and confidence in the language. I feel confidence is key in overcoming any kind of fear, so I make sure that students get through this, step by step, with practice and communication both inside and outside the classroom. I’m very laid back, but I’m also a perfectionist in the sense that I don’t like to do things ‘half way’; I would rather complete a small task and build things up step by step to produce quality results, rather than do a large and overwhelming task which will only give poor results.

    The way I tailor each lesson according to the specific student's needs is by beginning to establish the level in which they are at, and then ask them what it is they want to achieve: whether they want me to help them polish up their level of communication at work, within social environments, or even prepare for a specific exam or a performance. Once this is clear, I prepare the lessons in a way that I find is suitable for their objectives, always paying close attention to their performance in order to keep shaping each class in a way that a steady sense of progress is achieved. The classes will always be interactive because I believe this is the best way to ensure continuous interest, and therefore motivation, and that it will help me understand which areas are most difficult for each student so that I can keep shaping the lessons in their favour.

    About Me

    Hi! My name is Nadine. I've always been very passionate about arts and culture. I am a very creative, energetic and enthusiastic person. The most important thing in anything I do is making sure there is a genuine connection - whether it be with the people I’m working with, or the subject matter I’m dealing with. I have had a very international upbringing, so I can genuinely relate to people from all kinds of backgrounds. Moving around so much as a kid, as well as my more independent travelling in recent years, has taught me that each person is different and has something special that can be built on. Therefore, I always treat each student as an individual and try to understand them by discussing their particular goals. At the end of the day, whatever the student’s goals are will be my goals too.

    I spare no effort in trying to encourage a sense of personal meaning and value in the material used to help them achieve more clarity and confidence in the language. I feel confidence is key in overcoming any kind of fear, so I make sure that students get through this, step by step, with practice and communication both inside and outside the classroom.

    Education

    I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literatures (Universidad de Barcelona). My main focus was English and Spanish literature. Graduated with an outstanding final grade.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have +5 years of teaching experience in language (English, Spanish, German), as well as after school tutoring for different kinds of subjects (mainly GCSE & A-Level students).

    English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students) + IELTS
    I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

    Take your English or German to the next level with me!
    "One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." I am an absolute language enthusiast, who is as well lucky to pursue her greatest hobby at the university - I study to become a teacher of both English and German. I specialize in teaching mostly through conversation, during which I as well explain the main principles of grammar. Why so? I do not want my students to be overwhelmed by grammar and only get a minor option to speak and use what they just learned. This way of teaching as well allows me (and my students) to get to know each other better, which I find important. I prefer eye to eye lessons to the ones through Skype, as I believe that it makes a great difference when you know your language partner in person, not only through a laptop screen. Do not hesitate to contact me, I am looking forward to meeting you!

    Paula

    Conversational and Written English, including Proofreading, Public Speaking and Interview Preparation
    I am a TEFL-qualified native English speaker from Ireland, who specializes in Conversational and Business English. I also have a Ph.D. in History and spent years teaching at Trinity College Dublin before working for 3 years as a financial recruitment consultant training candidates to secure their perfect job. I use my professional experience to guide students through unique challenges, such as; making presentations in English, proofreading written work including theses, CV writing and preparing for an interview in English. Whatever your specific English requirements are, I can assist. I practice the "Dogme Teaching Method", which focuses classes on the students' specific needs and interests, rather than spending time on irrelevant grammar or language that the student will not use.

    Comprehensive English: Conversation, grammar and reading comprehension
    Normally the foreign language is learned in an unnatural way by focusing on grammar and writing, when in reality we know that a language is learned first by speaking and then by reading and writing. Just as young children do, remembering and associating. Learning to use and enjoy a language is the basis for learning to read and write later. With this inversion of the order of the factors, the learning of grammatical rules and spelling is not forgotten, but rather they can be learned more easily as soon as they begin to acquire oral skills.

    History, Political Science, Essay writing, Test Prep Tutoring
    Having worked in an alternative school, my approach is very much based on the understanding and ways of learning of each student. Rather than imposing a specific method on the student I try and understand how they work, how they understand the subject and what the university or school requires of them, and help them improve in the areas needed. I specialize in tutoring History and Political Science for school (iGCSE, A-LEVEL, IB) and university (Bachelors). I teach both content and form (essay writing and exam prep skills).

    Júlia
    Elementary Education student and graduate in Business Administration, I offer review classes for Primary and ESO students
    Hello! How are you? My name is Júlia and I am 22 years old. I have studied Business Administration at the University of Barcelona, but I have decided that I would like to focus my studies on what I really like, the educational field, and that is why I have started to study Primary Education. I work as a dining room monitor and volleyball coach in different schools, in addition, on vacation, I am a children's home monitor, so I have extensive experience in dealing with both children and adolescents. Both the experience of working with children and my studies of the teaching career give me the tools I need to know how to adapt the classes to the needs of the students, especially through motivation. As a revision teacher, I usually give school support classes mainly in languages (Catalan, Spanish, English and German) and social sciences (history, geography and economics).

    Tailor made English classes! For children and adults, all levels!
    Hello! My name is Anthony and I am an English teacher! I have a lot of experience learning and teaching languages and I love to share my knowledge with others. My methodology is to incorporate the new language into your day to day with simple, interesting and fun tasks. It relies heavily on conversation so that students lose their fear of speaking and can express themselves confidently and effortlessly. I try to find what my students are most passionate about and interested in, so that classes are as easy and easy as possible. I try to make my students learn English and at the same time interesting topics about the world, other cultures, geography, travel, history etc and current issues. During my life I was also more self-taught and learned more on my own than within the system we already know. I have developed very effective learning methods and I am very happy to be able to share it with my students. These methods can help you learn any skill, new disciplines, and new languages. The fact of learning a new language is an incredible experience since it opens your mind and the opportunities in life on a personal and professional level. I have been studying languages for a lifetime, it is my great passion. My classes are nothing like the conventional learning system and I try to make learning a pleasant and fun process. Because for me that is the best way to learn - Language coaching - Business English - Roleplaying - Work-related English
