Qualified native Spanish teacher all levels in East Sussex and Brighton area

Methodology

In my classes, students learn Spanish by constantly putting into practice everything they learn through interaction and cooperative tasks. Languages are made to communicate, and therefore the best way to learn a language is by using it to communicate from day one. My lessons are entertaining and funny, aimed to immerse students in a natural learning process.

Background

I have graduated from the Open University in 2016 with an upper-second class honours degree in Modern Languages, and from the University of Cantabria in 2017 with a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching of Spanish as a foreign language, for which I was awarded the grade of distinction. Also, I am certified by the Spanish government (through Cervantes Institute) as an official tutor and examiner for the DELE exams. I have completed my education with a number of courses from reputable schools such as the University of Southampton, the Spanish National University of Distance Education and the University of Caen in France. I have seven years of experience as a Spanish tutor with both adults students and children. I am passionate about teaching as it gives me the chance to make a difference in other people’s lives, particularly in a world where being able to communicate across boundaries is becoming increasingly important.
