English, Spanish language. How to do it? How to improve?

Vocabulary building, confidence, and fluency. If you're looking to perfect your English or Spanish vocabulary, pronunciation, I'm a certified teacher with 7 years of experience teaching languages who can help you achieve that goal. My lessons are a bit challenging in all areas and I do aim for the success of all students in my class. Any topic you may be interested in, no problem. If you're planning to move to an English or Spanish country in the near future or maybe your company is requiring you to learn it, please give it try. I assured you won't be disappointed.
I teach ages ranging from 4 years old up. Private in-person, groups and online lessons.

Extra information

I use my own books and build my own lessons, but if you're studying on a particular book, I can work with you on that, and build the lessons out of it. English is not my native tongue. Spanish is. But I lived, went to school, major graduated and worked in the US for over 30 years.

I'm currently living in Kashiwa city Japan. If I have to travel to my lesson, I don't go farther than a 45 minutes ration distance from where I am, north, south, east or west due to the cost it may put on students' lessons.

The fee reflected per lesson online and in private is only for one student.
Groups of three and up are given a discount.

*New* English with qualified British Teacher (native speaker): Friendly, Informative, Effective English Language Lessons (online via Skype)
Hello, I am a qualified native British English teacher, with a passion for helping people improve their English in a friendly, relaxed, collaborative way. I can help you increase your competence, and confidence, in both general and business English. Everybody has different language learning needs, therefore, your lesson will be tailored to meet your individual requirements. You may feel that you need to improve your listening comprehension, or extend your vocabulary; fine tune your pronunciation, or enhance your written and spoken grammar; boost your confidence in public speaking or feel comfortable with social conversation. Together we will identify your areas of priority and get you to where you want to be. I have a clear speaking voice, with no regional accent – which learners find easy to understand, and a friendly collaborative approach, rather than a dictatorial teaching style. I am learning French (my level is B2), so I know from personal experience that learning a new language can be challenging. Sometimes we feel we have reached a plateau and feel disheartened. In these situations, we need somebody who will be patient and take time to help us. I also know how frustrating it can be when we find it difficult to find the nuances that help us to express ourselves fluently. I understand. I will help you progress. It is natural to be nervous when learning to speak another language, but I promise not to scare you! I will help you overcome those nerves and develop confidence & competence in the areas that you need it most. I have the necessary pedagogy to help you with grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening skills and the varied styles of writing. (TEFL qualified with Distinction, 150-hour course). I also have 29 years’ experience in public speaking and giving presentations, so if you need to practice those skills in English I can help you with that. If you choose to learn with me, our first session will focus on identifying the following: • your language learning goals • your reasons for learning English • your language learning needs • your preferred method of learning • the amount of time you have allocated to studying English I look forward to working with you!

Every aspect of your teaching will be shaped by the role you want to play in the mentorship and development of your students. Every nuts-and-bolts teaching strategy, even the most practical advice about lecturing or writing exams, serves the goal of helping you become the kind of teacher who has inspired you. Below are some examples of some of the highest teaching goals to remind you that great teaching is more than a handful of teaching tricks strung together with modest aims and sufficient expertise in your field. Keep these goals in mind as you continue through the practical advice in our Resources. Inspire Students “Nothing pushes students to do their best work like a professor who takes pride not in his or her own accomplishments, but in helping others realize their potential. “ —Jason Dent, Philosophy, ’05 Your effort and enthusiasm as a teacher directly influence students’ commitment to your course and interest in your field. Great teachers inspire students by demonstrating belief in their students’ abilities and by providing the support students need to meet challenging academic demands.

| Creative Spanish Lessons Online to Improve Your Abilities or Start from Scratch |
I have always treated my students as individuals with their own story and passions and so I dedicate myself to design my own materials which will match their needs and interests. Because of my studies and indispensable TedTalks I became interested in implementing unconventional student-oriented methods into my everyday teaching. During my classes I use apps such as HeadsUp, BlackStories, Kahoot and Padlet to make them more interactive and motivating. I truly believe that education does not have to be system-determined and in 21st century students deserve to be taught with appropriate technology and so I have started to teach online. I hope you will give it a shot too :)

Spanish Tutoring (Basic, Intermediate and advance)
My goal is to see my students progressing day per day. Learning a new language or a language that you know some about it it's not easy at all. You can know very well the grammar, but at the same time you can be struggling with your confidence when you're having a conversation. So, taking into consideration that there is no secret formula to learning languages, it will depend of the student, of what they want or they think they need to improve. If is need it more grammar than other aspects it's okay. If the student need to practice more "the conversation" than other aspects it's also okay. As I said each person learn differently. So I'll try to adapt to each one.

Spanish lessons with a native, in person or by webcam
Spanish is one of the most spoken languages. Do you want to learn it? It does not matter what your purpose is with Spanish. - Starting over. - Learn the basics to defend yourself on a trip to Spain. - Help in homework, or in the preparation of exams. - Practice fluency speaking - Deepen the language to become a Spanish speaker. I adapt to the needs of each person because the classes are individual. In them we will learn both grammar and vocabulary but above all the speaking, since it is what most practice needs and we will reinforce at the point that it will cost us the most to advance. Learning a language is not easy so be patient, you will see how together we achieve it!
