Experienced and fun language teacher for Spanish ELE and English ESL

¡Hola a todos!

My name is Patricia. I'm a native Spanish speaker and a teacher. I've been teaching Spanish and English as second languages since 2004 and every day I enjoy my job even more!

I did my Spanish Philology and Literature studies and learned how to become a teacher at the National University of Salta.

I'm a committed, responsible and professional person, who is always eager to learn new things and in permanent training. My patience is infinite and I can find a thousand ways to explain something if it's necessary :)

I can make a course specifically for you, according to your knowledge, needs, interests, and requests. In 14 years of doing this, I've never taught the same course twice. I can even compile and produce tailor-made study material for you. Since I'm absolutely passionate about Spanish, I've studied its different varieties around the world, so I can guarantee that with my classes you'll be able to speak in any Spanish speaking country.

Over the years I've worked with a wide variety of students from teenagers to adults, from complete beginners to proficient people who just wanted to practice speaking. I also help students prepare for the DELE exams, I've done so in the past several years with excellent results.

I'm in love with languages and communication and teaching is my calling, my passion. With me grammar will never ever be an issue, furthermore, I can promise you that sometimes you'll even enjoy it and have fun!

I'd be more than happy to discuss with you what is the best way for you to learn from scratch or improve your Spanish/English in no time.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Eerste kennismaking was erg hartelijk. Zij stelde mij meteen op mijn gemak. De eerste les bijna alleen spaans gesproken. Ik heb er alle vertrouwen in dat ik onder begeleiding van haar het spaans goed zal leren spreken.Ik verheug me op de lessen die komen gaan.

Oliver
Qualified Native English Tutor - Adept in language AND literature
I am a native English speaker with full UK qualified teacher status. Having taught for three years in the English state school system, I am particularly adept at developing complex or academic skills in English and have high expectations of all pupils. I am experienced in teaching pupils for whom English is a native or additional language, and have a great respect for all pupils' needs and challenges, regardless of their context. My lessons will typically focus on using English literature to contextualise and develop understanding of the language, however I am highly adaptable and am happy to tailor my lessons to a range of different curriculums. I assign homework, typically focussed on reading classic English writers.

Maria
Spanish tutoring, All levels, Translator, Native Speaker
Spanish is a very useful language in today's globalised society. It is the second most spoken language in the world. Therefore, adding Spanish to one of your skills is highly valued. I am a native speaker and I studied Translation & Interpreting in Madrid and I am eager to teach the language in a fun, but at the same time, useful way. I have previous experience in tutoring (mainly teens) and the way I organise my classes is 50% my choice and 50% based on the student's needs and desires.

Rosa
English literature, language, comprehension, and fluency.
I have worked as a supplementary English tutor in Johannesburg South Africa for the past six years - mostly at primary and secondary school level. I am a fluent English speaker, and majored in English Literature and History of Art in my Bachelor of Arts degree, for which I received a distinction. I also tutored at a collegiate level in History of Art. I put a lot of emphasis on the role of literature and reading in learning a language, and hope to use resources like books, articles and even films to inspire my students. I also like to make classes fun and exciting for the learners.

English Lessons: Essentials of Grammar and Literature.
In today's day and age of globalization and networking, knowing English has taken up a primal importance. It facilitates communication, which opens up a vast array of avenues and helps to broaden a person's horizons. My aim is to guide students through a lively and enjoyable path as they learn to speak, read and write English by appreciating the cultural contexts and the rich literature available.

Ines

Eleanor

My teaching approach varies from student to student, and depends on what you are looking to gain from tuition.

Andi
American English pronunciation & accent reduction classes
Do you ever feel that you have so much to say but people ask you to repeat what you say because they don’t quite understand you? Do you feel that you have less credibility because your thick accent stands in the way of good communication? Or do you sometimes

Joost
bijles in alphavakken, Nederlands, Engels, Frans, Duits, Italiaans
Uitgaande van de vraag van de cursist bespreek ik het grammaticale of idiomatische probleem en oefen met hem/haar de toepassingen. Ik lees stukken tekst met de cursist(e) en voer conversaties in de betreffende taal. Afhankelijk van de problematiek, koppel ik ook terug naar eerdere stof omdat daar vaak al iets is misgegaan. Ik kijk ook vooral naar dagelijkse praktische toepasbaarheid van de stof.

Cristina
English teacher and private tutor for specific purposes, travelling, official exams, improve fluency, writing, speaking, any other.
I am a native Spanish speaker holding a Bachelor's degree in TEFL and a Master in Italian language. I've started my degree in the prestigious University of Granada in Spain and completed it in Cambridge, UK. I have been teaching since I am 18, to all levels, for all different kind of specific purposes, obtaining great results. Teaching is my vocation and my passion! Lessons will be tailored and personalised, we won't follow a book. I always create my own materials depending on what my students need, current level, objective that we need to reach and learning style. This is very important as every person is different. We can't apply the same method to two completely different people. I can assure you I have never had a disappointed student. I work hard to obtain the best results and assure your satisfaction getting you where you want to be.
