Santiago
Conversational virtual Spanish classes for all levels - adults
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.

Law - First, Second or Third Year of Law School, Master's Degree in Law, and Post-Graduate levels.
I am a qualified attorney-at-law and hold a PhD in International Law. I also have two Master's Degrees in Law: an LLM in EU Law from the College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium, and a second LLM from an Italian University. I have three specialization courses in Intellectual Property Law from Universities in China and the United States. As a qualified lawyer, I have worked for top-tier international law firms, the EU institutions, and top-ranked Universities. I am a guest lecturer in law in five Universities across Europe and Asia since 2011. I have been a private tutor for six years now, helping my students achieve their academic goals in different areas such as law, business administration, and communication studies. My experience with tutoring has been nothing but positive: being able to give back after many years of studying and working is extremely rewarding. I love following students through their learning journey, and their results are the best gratification.

Reading and creative writing classes, as well as writing articles and essays.
Both reading and writing are disciplines that require, today more than ever, periodic exercise and constant encouragement. For this, it is convenient to know the concerns and interest in the different subjects of each reader, regardless of their age. We must bear in mind that we are facing a paradigm shift and that technological progress affects our ways of communicating: the language we use as and the different forms of expression. To encourage children, as well as adolescents, to read, we need to motivate them, provide them with tools that allow them to discover the expressive and playful possibilities that these activities entail. In this way they will be able to face this activity in an active and participatory way, and not just passive (responding to a duty imposed by a teacher). These tools will be useful both for carrying out their homework and for acquiring greater skill and interest in the art of critically analyzing each subject they read, as well as for composing their own articles, essays, and narratives. And all this through the enjoyment that centuries of stories have given us.

Spanish classes for foreigners: Learn by speaking
The priority of the class is conversation as a means of teaching. The classes are taught in lessons per module, a total of four, where the students will interact in the development of the classroom, seeking learning in the interdisciplinary context. In module one and two, the aim is to reach the basic level through everyday conversations that are essential for learning the first words and phrases, enriching the knowledge of grammar. Arriving at modules three and four, the student will feel more confident when speaking, writing, reading and listening to the language through the topics raised.
