Spanish and English conversation for all skill groups

Many people, over time, lose the ability to converse in a second language after being unable to practice for a long time. This also makes them embarassed to take that first step to talk to people who know the language.

By having a space where people can talk with no judgement and encouraging their participation, my lessons allow students to gain confidence and improve their skills in a comfortable environment, discussing topics that they find interesting.

About Me

I am a 24 year old Spanish guy living in the Netherlands.

I grew up in Spain, and attended a British school in Madrid, giving me the chance to learn Spanish and English alongside each other since I was very young.
My family is of Peruvian background, which allowed me to better understand the differences between Spanish from Latinamerica and Spain. Moreover, I did my Undergraduate Degree in Scotland, allowing me to immerse myself even more in the language.

As such, I have a good understanding of what works and what doesn't when engaging natives of both English and Spanish backgrounds, and can help filter what would sound odd to a local, improving grammar and sentence structure use to further polish the student's skill.

My lessons are about fun. There will be no judging, regardless of the skill level, as I hope to make my lessons a space where students can feel safe to make mistakes, and learn from them. Due to the nature of the lessons, the content will vary depending on the interests of every student, in the same way a real conversation would, so you can expect variety and engagement.

All I ask from my students is to try to enjoy the lessons, and not worry too much about sounding like a local from the start: we are here to learn!

Education

I did my Undergraduate Degree at the University of Dundee, in the field of Biomedical Sciences.
I am currently doing a Masters Degree at the University of Maastricht, with a specialization in Regenerative Medicine.

Experience / Qualifications

In terms of English, I have the Cambridge C2 Proficiency Exam with a grade A, plus experience of four years living within the UK (Scotland) doing an Undergraduate Degree.
For Spanish, I grew up in Spain, in a Spanish-speaking family. Having been to a school in Spain, I also know how to move onto more formal styles of speech if required.

Practice and improve your Spanish in a fun way!
Are you interested in practicing your Spanish in a fun and entertaining way? As a native of Spanish, my goal is to help people who are in the process of learning the Spanish language, helping them to improve mainly their oral skills. The dynamics of the classes can be adapted for the convenience of the student, being able to place more emphasis on those aspects of Spanish that need improvement. Also, being bilingual, I offer these same classes for anyone who wants to improve or practice the Polish language.

Listening, Understanding, and Writing Skills in French or English.
I tutor in French and English to a wide range of students, from beginners to more advanced students. The point for both classes is to give beginners a glimpse into the beauty of the language and to introduce them to the basics in an entertaining and enjoyable way. The ultimate objective of these classes would be to ensure that beginners, by the end of the lessons, have acquired fair understanding, listening, and writing skills. On the other hand, advanced students are expected to experience even further progress in such skills. It must be noted that I will try to give each lesson in the targeted language, privileging the latter as much as possible during the lesson so as to help the student dive into the language.

Spanish lessons as second language, study assistance.
I have a lot of working experience during many years giving courses of the Spanish language at schools, institutions, online and private with students of all ages. After all that years with success and good reviews, I decided last year to start the study for examiner of the Spanish language, and since a few months I also have now my official license to be examiner. Good communication is important for a teacher and I mostly only speak Spanish to my students, even in the beginning. Only when I notice that a student really doesn’t understand where I am talking about, I switch to the local language for a moment.

As a teacher I believe it’s important to focus on the likes of students to help them improve and have a better development. As everything in life learning a language is simpler when you’re dealing with something you like. As part of my experience I taught in schools and students with different profiles and objectives in a language course.

I will make your Spanish better through many real-life examples, conversation and grammar exercises.
