Qualified and experienced teacher and C2 level Spanish speaker available to teach international Spanish

I have 4 years' experience as a teacher of languages with the prestigious British Council in Egypt, Qatar and Mexico. I studied Spanish at secondary school, during my first year at the University of Cambridge and again when I lived in Mexico City. I took the DELE official diploma of Spanish as a foreign language issued on behalf of the Spanish government at the C2 (native-like) level in December 2019.

Every lesson of mine includes some vocabulary work, because it is easy to get lazy and not record the new words we hear and understand, but active vocabulary study is essential for continual growth. I encourage learners to do as many written grammar exercises as they can outside of the classroom, so that classroom time can be dedicated to valuable conversation practice. I help learners use technology to improve their memory and learn more quickly.

Xavier
English teacher. Like learning while teaching. Love feeling my students enjoy their learning.
Experiència de més de 20 anys donant classes d'anglès i català a grups reduïts d'ESO i Batxillerat i classes de repàs en el sector de les Humanitats. Doy clases de inglés desde hace muchos años. He impartido a grupos reducidos y a particulares de repaso (ESO y Bachillerato). Me desplazo. Busco estabilidad y continuidad para todo el curso. Enseñar es mi vocación. Por las mañanas trabajo en una empresa de telemárketing en BCN en un ambiente multicultural donde el inglés es nuestra lengua vehicular y a partir de las 16h tengo disponibilidad. Actualmente soy  profesor de inglés en la Academia English Studio, en Cornellà de Llobregat en turno  de  tardes. Todos los niveles y edades. Barajo la posibilidad de dedicarme a la docencia también en horario de mañana, siempre y cuando la oferta para este horario fuera de mi interés. En el turno de tarde soy  autónomo. Busco estabilidad y continuidad en Academia o similar para todo el curso y en verano. Disponible también para empresas y online. También profesor de catalán y español. My name is Xavier. I was born in Barcelona... a long time ago. I grow up in this town, but now I live a bit far from here. I studied at the University of Barcelona and in Huddersfield (near Shefield, Halifax, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool,...not very far from York: quite nice places and better people), and I've been teaching Catalan, Spanish, Phillsofy, History and English for a long time...since I was  16. What happened? Very short, I promise: I was walking down the street two years ago, from just opposite this private school, and I thought  myself: well, you might enter this place and see. I like English language very much... and the UK,... but I don' t have a poster of the Queen on my bedroom's wall. It was a sort of a blind date. And there she was: her smile, her diligence, effectiveness. Eva listened to me. And after two weeks she was texting me for a class. Please, Xavier, can you cover for some classes?  And here I am. (That was in the academy English Studio, untill13th March, when the lady in charge said literally that she would pass my 59 students to another teacher because I had no Internet at home, as I had recently moved to another town and had not had time to set the internet) #.................... Morning shift: Professional Objective: English teacher.   Professional experience More than 15 years in several Contact Centers as an Agent or as a Team Leader or  Supervisor. Companies: Teletech, Telefono Permanente, MST, Teleperformance and Promofon. As a Team Leader / Supervisor: more than three years in Teleperformance and Promofon, (ONO),  making sure the group of Agents  were appropriatly trained and equipped to resolve doubts, problems and change requests;  makintg sure the team could respond effectively to Account Managers ` requests for further information and , when necessary, take proactive action to ensure they were aware of an issue. And last but not least, every day monitoring work, keeping  an eye on the activity of premium learners, ensuring the team was taking the necessary proactive action, either by phone or email. I had to support very often other colleagues in accordance with business needs and  to share ideas to improve business practices and the quality of the service. More than 20 years as an English teacher. Also, Spanish, Catalan an Humanities subjects. Qualifications: Universitat Central de Barcelona, Law Studies.

Spanish for non-Spanish speakers. Improve your speaking, reading, writing and listening skills.
Improve your skills to communicate in Spanish. I focus on three fundamental items: - Coherence in communication (speaking and writing) - Pronunciation - Grammar In the first class, a preliminary interview is done to assess the student's knowledge and to know their objectives with the Spanish language. Thus a study plan can be drawn up in which the student's objectives are covered and deadlines and goals are established.

Selene
Spanish Class - Learn how to express yourself in Spanish

That means progressively you will be gaining fluency in Spanish and if you get stuck, I can provide you help in English. If you feel you cannot manage it, the whole hour could be in English. Teenagers and adults (also Junior Cycle and Leaving Cert).

Caroline
Tailor-made language lessons for French, Spanish and English in Soest and the surrounding area
I am Caroline, a French woman who has lived in the Netherlands for 25 years. I was raised trilingual with French as my mother tongue and Spanish and German as second languages (Spanish father and Austrian mother). I have also lived in Great Britain and Norway (Norwegian husband) for a number of years, so I now speak 6 languages. I have been giving private lessons for years with a lot of enthusiasm and personal attention. My way of teaching is very free. I can follow a specific book, or adapt the lesson completely to the student with my own lessons. I always try to offer a combination: part grammar, part reading skills and reading comprehension, and a free part with fun themes. A language is alive, so I always try to give living lessons. Through experience I also know that many people who have difficulty with languages quickly drop out because the pace is too fast and because they do not understand the basics of the language. My lessons give the student the time to understand the language so that they can catch up. They also learn to overcome their fear of speaking. Real tailor-made lessons that guarantee progress and where you will not drop out!
