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.

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world; if you dream of Spain or Latin America, then, learning this language is definitely on your list.

Marco
Private tutoring for English, Italian and Latin. Interactive lessons and conversations, preparation for University.
Hey there! My name is Marco, I am a 21 years old university student from Venice, Italy. I love languages and culture, and I think really the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. This is why in my classes I take great care to ensure that my classes are interactive, so that the students feel engaged and do not get bored. I can help you with all your English needs, reading, speaking and listening. If you want to study at a University in English, I can help you to be prepared by teaching you how to write proper academic papers and avoid the common mistakes non-native speakers make. I also teach Italian and Latin, which I studied extensively in Italy. My teaching style is informal and interactive, as I think the best lesson should feel like a conversation rather than a lecture. I can help you with all your homework needs, and I will add a bit of cultural dimension so you can really feel invested in what you are learning. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information, I am always available and I will respond fast.

Samantha
English Tutor for Students, Adults and Professionals
English is one of the most popular languages in the world. In the modern age of globalism, it has been regarded as the most used language in terms of communication, let that be via emails, telephone calls, or letters. My goal with this class is to make you comfortable in all forms of communication with this language, so you can communicate with colleagues, friends, or potential new friends in a social setting. The main objective of this class is to completely remove the language barrier psychologically, so you can also think in English rather than just writing, listening, and expressing it. I look forward to helping new students and contribute to their aspiration to learn a Language.
