About Me

Dear student!
My name is Denise. Since I have a double life as singer and writer with a double degree I give both: Spanish as a foreign language and singing and music theory lessons.
As a Spanish as foreign language I also count with a certification by the Cervantes Institute (ELE using the Spanish acronym for español lengua extranjera) .
On the other hand, as a music and singing teacher I accomplish the master in interpretation, musicology and musical education by the Superior College of Music of Catalonia.
For the last five years I’ve been teaching to a broad variety of students: children, teenagers, adults and in company lessons in Mexico, Spain and Germany.
From my tutoring experience I've learned that each student is a special case and a great opportunity for mutual growth.
Following a flexible method I adapt to the student’s level working together in an amicable atmosphere so learning becomes an enjoyable experience.
Also I develop in the field of content or ghost writing, music journalism and at this moments I study German as foreign language and marketing for freelancers so I can boost my knowledge and reach more people.
I invite you to contact me and wish you the best in your learning journey.
Denise

My girl loves her teaching very much. Denise can really teach her the skill of singing 😊
A great teacher with a lot of knowledge about singing!
Denise a été très professionnelle et attentive. Elle est capable d'adapter ses cours aux besoins de l'élève. Pour ma part , je suis commerciale et nous avons pu aborder des thèmes relatifs à mon secteur d'activité. J'ai pu revoir les bases ainsi que le vocabulaire propre à l'espagnol des affaires.
Merci
Denise is flexible and adapts to your needs and requests. I told her I wanted to talk about geopolitics and economics so she found me interesting articles to read and debate with her. I learned a lot of vocabulary and it helped me to improve my Spanish speaking skills!
Dear student: My name is Denise and I'm a professional singer with a singing master's degree from Catalonia's Music College (ESMUC) with experience in classical and popular music (mostly Latin-American folklore) My goal is to help the student discover her or his voice while enjoy making music.

Santiago
Conversational virtual Spanish classes for all levels and ages
Hello, My name is Santiago and I am offering individual and personalized virtual Spanish classes to improve both your oral and written communication. The main focus of my classes is focused on developing fluent and structured communication of the Spanish language either to prepare international exams, to be able to communicate properly in the professional field or to reinforce and maintain prior knowledge of this language. I am a native Spanish speaker from Uruguay, graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in the USA, and studied communication arts for a year and a half in Thailand. While studying communication arts, I had several public speaking classes, learning techniques of how to speak better using not only our words but also our body to help us speak more naturally, calmly, and without getting nervous if we get stuck or forget what we wanted to say. During my career in the US, I was constantly writing essays for my classes, in addition to having to present projects in front of my teachers and classmates. At the same time, I was working at university and after graduation I worked for a year, mainly having long phone conversations with people from all over the country. These past years I gained invaluable experience in living abroad and communicating using my second language. Now, I help others who are looking to do the same. I help people of all around the world with their Spanish so they can meet their goals. It could be studying abroad, going to live in a Spanish-speaking country, improving your communication in the professional field, or keep practicing so as not to lose your previously acquired level. If what you are looking for is to improve your knowledge of the Spanish language, I will help you. My methodology is simple. Each person is different and I adapt the content of my classes to the needs and interests of my students. We all learn in different ways and at different times. That's why I design my classes individually, focusing more on conversation, speaking, listening, while also helping with reading and grammar. This way we can keep classes entertaining, covering all angles of Spanish learning, and learning this language as a whole.

Spanish lessons with an experienced native speaker [ONLINE]
¡Hola! I am an experienced teacher who adapts to the needs of the student. In my lessons, we can work on both practical and functional Spanish to travel and communicate on a daily basis in a Spanish-speaking country, but also more academic Spanish to develop written expression or the skills necessary to pass the DELE exam. In my lessons, I use teaching materials to work on grammar in a simple and inductive way, so that we can focus on the communicative aspect. I love games, creativity exercises, and role playing. In general, my students do not feel that my lessons are something forced, but that it is very natural and spontaneous. Learning a language can be fun! Regarding my experience, I have more than four years of experience and I have an official Master's in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I have worked in private academies, international bilingual schools and public institutes. So I have experience with children, adolescents and adults. In addition, I speak Spanish, Galician, French and English and I have also worked with students of various origins (French, Italian, Slovak, English ...) so I can know what are the difficult aspects given your native language. Personally, I love nature, travelling, playing sports and connecting with my students. I have lived in three different countries: Wales, France and Slovakia. All my lessons are ONLINE. In conclusion, I hope we can work together! Claudia

Ilia
English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension
Hi All! Thank you for checking out my course. I am a native Russian speaker, born and raised in Moscow. After completing the middle school in Russia, I then moved to Scotland and three years later had received the IB Diploma certificate with a score of 36 points. This, as well as my extracurricular achievements in performing arts, had secured me a place at King's College London in the UK. Having studied a variety of subjects at school in Scotland, from English and German literature to Maths, Sciences and Music allowed me to become fluent in English, and achieve mastery of "technical", that is to say, "scientific" English, as well as spoken English and slang. Needless to say that my writing skills have massively improved due to the large number of essays I had to write during my school and then uni career. Currently, though, I am on my year abroad in Germany as a part of my LLM, and am eager to offer my services as an English tutor for those who are thinking of taking up a new language, be it for academic or professional reasons, or simply for fun. I believe that studying in three different countries have allowed me to try out and assess various approaches to education in general and teaching languages in particular - from the rigorous Russian system based on ensuring that the students will obtain exceptional spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation skills, to the more relaxed yet more critical and analytical Western approach, focused on problem-solving and independent work. There is a vast bank of techniques and methods that will be used in class to peak and maintain your interest. Due to my personal passion for literature, I would love to use extracts from novels and poetry to stimulate the student's creativity and understanding of style, as well as enhance their vocabulary and develop a deeper appreciation for the language. And since I'm a student too, I would be able to share my personal tips and tricks with you to help you reach whatever goal you have set for yourself!

Maud
French Grammar and Oral Tutoring Intermediate to Advanced level.
Classical traditional teaching with help of appealing French schoolbook which starts easy but takes student smoothly but fast to intermediate/high level combined with oral conversation. Meant for school children especially with the aim of passing exams or for adults who want to take French back. I adore languages. I like to teach, to pass on knowledge, and rejoice in progress which, as a matter of fact, is a result of matching teamwork. I am quite old fashioned in my teaching which means that we will learn by serious work and not 'by play' as some schools or parents wish for. We have to keep in mind that the idea is that the student is progressing in his/her learning which does not mean that it cannot be fun.

Abraham
Math, Physics and Spanish lessons up to graduate level
Math and Physics can get complicated when things are not fully understood and an intuiton is not well developed. I aim to provide students with the keys neccessary to surmount the difficulties and go to the bottom of the problems found on the way. I specialize on high school and undergraudate levels. The content is totally adaptable to your needs. Regarding Spanish, I am native and love languages. My experience learning English (C1) and German (B2) lets me see what are usually the difficult parts of learning a language. In practising "speaking" I can perfectly adapt to your level. I offer classes to any level from basic to advanced. If you come in groups the classes per person will be cheaper : )

Marcelo
Spanish teacher, native speaker and a creative teacher.
There's no better way to learn Spanish than taking lessons from a native speaker. Spanish teacher, native speaker and a creative teacher. I check the student's weak points to improve and level them up with the strengths. We can use English to learn, or push harder and use Spanish only (that helps a lot)!
