Certified Spanish tutor with 10 years of experience. English, French, German and Russian spoken

Do you want to travel or live in Spain and feel confident? Do you have some trouble speaking and would like to work on your fluency? Are you preparing DELE or SIELE? You always wanted to learn Spanish and have decided that the time might be just now? I can help you! Some of my students were also in the same place as you.

My name is Irene García Núñez. 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 10 years of teaching, I learnt a lot about different methods, people and logics.
I have a vast experience with very different students, their needs and the adequate resources for them. I know how to 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. I like learning about my students′ personal interests so we can use them in the learning process. This way what we do and talk about makes sense and is relevant for them.

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 follow mainly a communicative approach though the goal pursued by the student is what defines the final design of the class.

I love teaching and learning new languages because it brings us closer.

About Me

My name is Irene García Núñez and right now I am 36. 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.

Miquel Matas
Comprehensive English: Conversation, grammar and reading comprehension
Normally the foreign language is learned in an unnatural way by focusing on grammar and writing, when in reality we know that a language is learned first by speaking and then by reading and writing. Just as young children do, remembering and associating. Learning to use and enjoy a language is the basis for learning to read and write later. With this inversion of the order of the factors, the learning of grammatical rules and spelling is not forgotten, but rather they can be learned more easily as soon as they begin to acquire oral skills.

Laura Collado
english, literature, history, philosophy learn how to learn in seven easy steps
I specialize in tutoring english, literature and spanish. My goal is to kkepp studients challenged, in different types of learning cognitive skills, hability to learn a foreign language wih games, memory and riddles. I think that the best way to learn a language is with games and grammar. I like to teach english, catalan and spanish because I'm a spanish native speaker, so I can teach with a different way to improve other languages.

Online SPANISH LESSONS with Certified Native Teacher - ALL LEVELS!
I am a native teacher from Barcelona, with a degree in History and as a Spanish teacher for foreigners. I have been teaching private lessons for over 10 years, but I’ve also taught in the context of cultural associations and the French & Catalan national education. I am always happy to be part of my students’ learning journey; no matter what level you have, we will learn plenty of things together! :) I offer dynamic Spanish online lessons adapted to each person and their needs. My lessons are oriented to all levels, using the language in real and pedagogic contexts. As a teacher, I am very interested in letting my students learn not only the language but also the Spanish culture, as it is a fundamental aspect to really be able to succeed in the learning process. In order to do so, we will work on all the different competences (oral and writing skills), grammar and vocabulary, of course, but also I like to use some real texts, videos, songs, etc., so we can get the chance to learn from real instructional materials and discuss the news and culture. I try to use Spanish as the main language during my lessons. Of course, I can translate when it's necessary (I am fluent in both English and French). But I really believe that the most important thing is to try to communicate in Spanish so you will become more and more fluent. Don't worry: we will get there step by step! I’ve helped a lot of students pass their exams, prepare their job interviews and resumes, or just become comfortable in their oral practise. I am used to teach Spanish from scratch, I have long experience teaching high levels as well. Please, contact me for further information and let me know how I can help you.

Aprende Español para la vida real. Mejora tu comunicación en tu entorno laboral y social.
Ofrezco clases bien estructuradas en las que el alumno aprende a leer, escribir, escuchar y hablar, siempre, en un contexto real. Combino diferentes tipos de actividades y materiales para hacer la clase amena y que el alumno se sienta cómodo. A mis alumnos de español , les recomiendo salir del aula y conocer Barcelona: visitar una exposición, ir de compras, al mercado y hacer diferentes actividades para practicar el idioma en situaciones reales. Creo que cada alumno tiene su propio ritmo de aprendizaje y se debe respetar. Con un buen profesor todos pueden alcanzar su objetivo.

Learn Spanish from a Native Teacher in a fun a dynamic way
I am a Spanish native speaker, I am from Colombia but I have lived in Spain for the last 4 years plus I have been living in other Latin American countries like Peru and Mexico. My goal is to transmit to my students all this cultural background that I have by teaching Spanish. The objective is to learn to pronounce the words in the most neutral way and learn how to conjugate verbs to avoid making the usual mistakes, which will make you feel more comfortable.

Spanish classes: Language, communication and practice [ONLINE]
Hello my name is Federico, I speak Spanish, English and Portuguese. I have been teaching Spanish for over 7 years, both face-to-face and virtual through different applications that can be adapted to the student's need. At the Faculty of Buenos Aires I studied Veterinary Medicine, where I also currently teach. I live in Argentina, therefore I can give classes via Webcam to anywhere in the world.

Marc
Spanish and Catalan teacher for every person with any level.
I've configured a class that will help you improve your weaknesses. I like to insist in phrase order and to analyse every word. That will help you understand better how a romance language works. I guarantee that you'll be able to comprehend how these languages work and once you learn Spanish, you will find French, Portuguese or Italian appealing due to its similarities.

Natalia
Review classes of all subjects from ESO to University
My classes are aimed at anyone who has difficulties in any subject. My specialty is Catalan language and literature, but I also teach Spanish, English, Latin, Greek, history, philosophy, etc. My teaching method consists of alternating theory with practice in order to apply knowledge through exercises, writing, etc. I am a very patient person, committed to my work, persistent and eager to help anyone who costs or wants to increase their course average.

Learn the language with a local teacher who will adapt to your needs! :)
I am a multilingual translator who has been working as a language teacher for 4 years now. As my parents are Spanish (Catalan) and French, I am native in the three languages. I have also studied abroad, so I have a C2 level in English (with the Proficiency Certificate). Hence, I also prepare students for all the Cambridge English exams (First Certificate-B2, Advanced-C1 and Proficiency-C2).
