Certified Spanish tutor with 10 years of experience. English, French, German and Russian spoken

Do you want to travel or live in Spain and feel confident? Do you have some trouble speaking and would like to work on your fluency? Are you preparing DELE or SIELE? You always wanted to learn Spanish and have decided that the time might be just now? I can help you! Some of my students were also in the same place as you.

My name is Irene. I come from Guadalajara, a town close to Madrid, but live in beautiful Barcelona.

I understood very early that I like not only learning but also teaching languages and studied my Masters of Linguistics Applied to Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I have lived in France, India, Germany and Russia teaching Spanish. During these 10 years of teaching, I learnt a lot about different methods, people and logics.
I have a vast experience with very different students, their needs and the adequate resources for them. I know how to adapt my classes to what students want and need so they make the most of their time and money.

I think it is very important for students to feel comfortable and safe. I like learning about my students′ personal interests so we can use them in the learning process. This way what we do and talk about makes sense and is relevant for them.

I also speak English, French, German and Russian. I can explain in the student′ s mother tongue if necessary although my goal will be to speak Spanish from the very beginning with affordable exercises adapted to your level. I follow mainly a communicative approach though the goal pursued by the student is what defines the final design of the class.

I love teaching and learning new languages because it brings us closer.

About Me

My name is Irene and right now I am 38. I come from Guadalajara but live in beautiful Barcelona.
I understood very early that I like teaching languages and studied my masters of Linguistics applied to Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language to do so. I have lived in France, India, Germany and Russia teaching Spanish. During these 10 years teaching (and counting!) I learnt a lot about different methods, people and logics.
I love teaching and learning new languages because it brings us closer.

Education

My bachelor is Translation and Interpreting (English and French). I did one year as Spanish assistant in schools in the South of France and understood that I liked teaching (funny enough I discovered with time that it was adults I prefer to work with) and then studied my masters of Linguistics applied to teaching Spanish as a foreign language to do so.

While working these last 10 years, I have done different courses to learn more about my profession.
I am also a certified tutor for SIELE.
