Translated by Google. Click to view original.
Talk! Talk! Talk!
If you have trouble speaking fluently, you always go blank, it takes a lot of effort to construct sentences or find the words when you need them, we can work and improve this!
If you have problems with grammar, I prepare classes adapted to your objective with specific exercises and specific resources.
If you are preparing for an exam (TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge, Official Language School...), I can help you with the preparation with specialized material, focused corrections and important guidelines when taking the test so that we can iron out your errors and controlling your production.
Let's do this!

About Me

My name is Irene and right now I am 39. 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.

Already done some Spanish but want to improve? Got some grammar issues? Want to work on your communication? Preparing for an exam? You always wanted to learn Spanish and have decided that the time might be just now? I can help 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 15 years of teaching, I learnt a lot about different methods, people and logics. I use a variety of resources (textbooks, articles, small videos, audios...) providing examples, exercises and homework so that what is to be learnt is doable. I 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. It is also essential that what we do and talk about in class makes sense and is relevant for you. It is your goal and personal style of learning what will define our classes. 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 love teaching and learning new languages because they bring us closer.

English Tutoring- Intermediate to Advanced conversational class to hone your skills!
What I provide in an English tutoring class is a little different from the traditional classroom setting. I excel in one-on-one conversations about everyday subjects like hobbies, work, social situations and debate. The structure of a class is self-contained, meaning every class is useful on its own, with something to take home on every lesson. Instead of dusty books and worksheets, classes that I provide revolve around real-world scenarios that we both bring to the discussion. We regularly establish healthy boundaries around how we coach grammar, syntax and pronunciation mistakes so that the student will gain knowledge and confidence in their language skills without the stress that comes with being corrected. Each lesson lasts an hour, unless special plans are made in advanced.
